Rajon Rondo Speaks Out On Fight With Kris Humphries!

AFTER WEDNESDAY’S FIGHT, RAJON RONDO HAS BEEN QUIET UNTIL NOW… HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO SAY VIA ESPN

“I told them the truth,” Rondo said of his conversation with the league. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. They haven’t made a decision yet, so I’m just waiting to hear back from the league. I went through practice today hoping I’ll play tomorrow, but you never know.”
What does his gut tell him?

“You never know, you just never know,” said Rondo. “It’s out of my control. Whatever the consequences are, that’s what they are. I don’t think I did anything dirty. I didn’t try to start a riot. I don’t think it was more than a pushing war. That’s about it.”
Rondo called the foul by Humphries “malicious,” and explained why he reacted the way he did.

“Well I thought the play on Kevin was a malicious play, you know?” said Rondo. “I got hurt last year on a similar play like that — a guy going up in the air, defenseless, on his way down. And you know, I just, I pushed Humphries. And after that, it was a pushing war.”

Does he regret his actions?

“I know I have to be out there for my teammates, he said. That’s the only thing about it. But, I was sticking up for my teammates. I didn’t try to start a fight. I’m not trying to be a bully. I just didn’t think the play was fair that he made on Kevin, that’s all.”
Rondo has a history of losing his cool on the court. He was suspended one game for bumping an official during last year’s playoffs and got a two-game ban for throwing a ball at an official during the regular season before that. He will likely be suspended for this incident as well.

“This game is a contact sport, it’s an emotional game. I play with an edge every night, Rondo said. I think that’s what separates me from a lot of guys. So, I’m not going to let that take me away from my game. I didn’t do anything dirty. This is a new day and era, the style of how we play the game. Back in the day, the ball would have been checked up, some free throws would have been made and we would have kept going. But, it’s a new era, and we’ve got different rules now.”
