Hawks' Ivan Johnson: KG 'a dirty player'

Hawks forward Ivan Johnson might be in his first year in the league, but he's not afraid to speak his mind about one of the league's veteran standouts: Celtics forward Kevin Garnett.

"Garnett, he's a dirty player," Johnson told reporters after Monday's practice. "He gives me a lot of elbows, and I can handle that."

Johnson, a 28-year-old who has had his share of issues with his temper in college, the D-League and overseas, said he wasn't surprised that Garnett tried to get him off his game during Sunday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

"I was prepared for that," Johnson said. "I already knew how KG was going to come at me. They're a whole bunch of mess-talkers."

Added Johnson: "I know we're not going to fight on the court. I can handle it. I can take some hits. I try not to [hit back] because I'm usually the one that gets caught."

David Stern: Rondo 'obviously bumped him'

NBA commissioner David Stern, appearing on an ESPN Radio show Monday morning, implied the league won't buy Rajon Rondo's explanation that he did not intentionally make contact with referee Marc Davis during Sunday's game in Atlanta. Rondo appears headed for a suspension of at least one game.

"I don't want to pre-judge on what the recommendation is going to be," Stern told Colin Cowherd. "But as a fan, he obviously bumped him. And you know what happens with respect to that."

Added Stern: "We have a hard and fast rule. Unless somebody trips you and sends you into him, nobody touches a referee. That's the proposition."

It's expected that the league will announce its ruling on Rondo sometime Monday afternoon.

Donaghy on D&C: Ref Davis has 'rabbit ears'

Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning to talk about Rajon Rondo's ejection from Sunday's game by referee Marc Davis.

Donaghy, who served prison time for his role in a gambling scandal while he officiated games, said he has no doubt Rondo intentionally made contact with Davis, meaning Rondo is likely to be suspended by the league for Game 2.

"I don't think he has any wiggle-room at all," Donaghy said. "I think he definitely was making comments toward him, walked toward him, and I think he bumped him on purpose."

However, Donaghy had little positive to say about Davis.

"Definitely Marc Davis is one of those guys that has rabbit ears for certain people," Donaghy said. "He's a referee that thinks people pay for their tickets to come and see him. He's one of those guys that has a little bit of an ego. So, I'm sure it's not the first time that he's had a problem with...

Mashup: Giants' Umenyiora unhappy with GM

Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora is not happy with the way general manager Jerry Reese  has been handling negotiations for a contract extension, claiming that the GM is trying to make him look like a "greedy pig."

On Saturday, Reese insisted that Umenyiora has been offered a contract extension the past two seasons. Umenyiora, who last spring accused Reese of being a liar in a court affidavit, responded via an e-mail to the New York Daily News on Sunday, claiming that the latest offer wasn't close to teammate Mathias Kiwanuka's three-year, $21.75 million extension that included an $8.5 million signing bonus and $10.95 million in guaranteed money.

Wrote Umenyiora: Last year I was offered incentives. This year they offered me in guaranteed money, HALF of what they just gave Kiwi guaranteed. HALF. I’m not making that up. Then Jerry tells the world they offered me an extension and I turned it down. And I look like a...
