Rajon Rondo Says Fight With Kris Humphries Was Just a ‘Pushing War’ (VIDEO)

The NBA has yet to dole out punishment for the fracas in Boston last night — which, to be fair, was a lot more contentious in the postgame commentary than anything that took place on the floor — but it’s very likely that Rajon Rondo and others involved in the brouhaha will be suspended. The Boston Celtics’ point guard broke down what happened between him and Kris Humphries, and did his best to defend his on-the-court reputation. Per WEEI: “I talked to the NBA,’ Rondo said. ‘They recorded the conversation. I just explained what went on, what happened [late] in the second quarter. I told them the truth. I don’t know what’s going to happen. They haven’t made any decisions yet. I’m just waiting to hear back from the league. I went through practice hoping I’ll play [Friday] but you never know.’ Rondo said he has no hunch on whether he will be suspended or how long any disciplinary action might be. ‘You never know, you just never know,’ Rondo said. ‘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. I thought the play on Kevin was a malicious play. I got hurt last year on a similar play like that, a guy going up in the air defenseless, on his way down. I just pushed Humphries and after that it was a pushing war.'”
