The NBA suspended Kings rookie Thomas Robinson two games for his flagrant foul elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko in Wednesday’s game. Robinson already apologized via his Twitter account, but he also talked to Jonathan Santiago of Cowbell Kingdom and was very apologetic:
I feel pretty bad today. I feel worst today after the aftermath. You know I knew I was wrong. So as a man, I have to take responsibility with that and I’ll take my consequences and move on. And hopefully this doesn’t stick with me because I’m not that type of person. I’m not a bad kid, you know I just made a mistake and it won’t happen again.
It’s important to note that everything we know about Robinson should back that up — he has an incredibly tragic back story and is one of the easier guys to root for in the league.
