ORLANDO — Rajon Rondo did not want to talk much about his two-game suspension for tossing the ball at official Sean Wright during Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons. But after a few minutes, he expressed regret about his anger and actions.
“Yes it was (difficult being away),” he said in his first interview since the incident. “I made a mistake and that’s what it is. I don’t think will see that again from me. Obviously I learned from it. I’m an emotional player and I felt things were different and I reacted the way I reacted.”
Rondo was a late addition to the All-Star Team although he had plans to spend the weekend in the Bahamas.
“It’s an honor to be here, regardless of how I got here, I’m here,” he said. “It’s a credit to me team. We’re not playing great but we’re still able to finally get some type of wins. The guys have been unselfish in letting me do my thing this year.”
