04:43 PM ET 11.29 | Rajon Rondo doesn't seem to regret his decision to instigate a brawl between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. In his first interview since the fight, he said he didn't think his actions were "dirty" while downplaying the nature of the scrum. "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 talked to the league on Thursday and awaits news on a possible suspension.

Then why get involved. Not smart dude. Now your team is going to take 2 unnecessary L's cause you had the urge to play Billy Bada**! This started last year in the playoffs. Memo to Rondo: Get a grip Kid!

It's funny how no one is talking about what Humphries did. I guess that's because hard fouls are a part of the game, right? Just because people accept something as being "part of the game" doesn't mean it isn't bad idea. Knocking a player off balance while he's in the air and making no play on the ball I suppose is perfectly acceptable.

Which goes back to a point I was trying to make elsewhere. Obviously something happened to cause a reaction from Rondo, K.G. and others. Over-reaction? Perhaps, but to expect no reaction on a play like that, in the heat of the moment is just not realistic.

yeah, something else must have happened to make him so heated.
