Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo admitted he “could have handled the situation better” in the wake of his one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

Rondo, who was punished after a verbal altercation with assistant coach Jim Boylen during Saturday’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks, spoke for the first time since missing Monday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

“Me, as a player, as a point guard, I could have handled the situation better,” Rondo said. “But when I feel a certain way, I’m going to speak on it. My whole thing is always for the betterment of the team. So if it comes off the wrong way or things of that nature, I’m trying to work on that; but for the most part, I’m not a selfish individual.”
