On his weekly interview with WEEI, Doc got into the chat that he and Rajon had last week after his beef with Kris Humphries.
Chris Forsberg writes:
“Rondo understands that we need him,” said Rivers. “And Rondo almost said the same thing. He said, ‘Coach, I didn’t go in there to have a fight. I went in there to push [Humphries] off Kevin [Garnett] and, the next thing you know, he grabs my arm and then I pushed back and it escalated. He said, ‘I never intended to fight, that’s not what I did. I was just trying to push him off Kevin.’ The worst you get is a [technical foul] out of that.”
Rondo joked earlier this week that he escaped to Mexico during his suspension and Rivers said he couldn’t entirely rule out the possibility.
“I have no idea [where he went], I really don’t,” said Rivers. “I don’t ever check. He’s a grown man. He wasn’t in our locker room. I did say, ‘Go where you want, do what you want, just keep working out and watching us play.’ And he did those things.

So far, Williams...

It’s very appropriate that the 9th Gang Green episode of the season has a lot to do with #9.

Rondo said that...
