Here are a few quotes from Thomas Robinson after today's practice after he learned he'd been suspended two games by the NBA for elbowing Detroit's Jonas Jerebko in the neck.
"I was wrong. I was 100 percent at fault."
On what teammates said to him:
"I’ve got to be smarter in my decisions. It was a bad decision, a bad choice I made. I made it already, I can’t change it. If I could I would but it’s something I have to live with and move on from here."
On had he ever had an incident like this in high school or college:
"Not at all. Unfortunately I’m not perfect. I would love to be, but I made a mistake. It rarely happens to me. I’ve never been in that type of situation before. I’ve never been ejected from a game or anything of that sort of matter. I definitely take full responsibility and I apologize to the whole organization, the fans and everybody who supports me. It won’t happen again."
On what led to the elbow:
"Just frustration. It’s nothing he did. Chirping is part of the game and that’s something I have to adjust to. These guys are professionals, whether it’s trash talking, whatever, they’re pros. He got under my skin and I let it get to me. So it was a mistake."
