After serving his two-game suspension for the Kris Humphries fight, Rondo offered no apology when he returned to the team and met with reporters.
“I wanted to be out there with my teammates but, obviously, a two-game suspension ... like I said, I was glued in front of the TV,” said Rondo, who told reporters he went to Mexico during the break. “Hopefully I don’t feel too winded tomorrow. I think I’ve been off for about a week now. We’ll see tomorrow.”
When asked if there was a lesson to be learned from his third suspension in nine months, he flatly said: “No.”
