On Monday Brandon Ingram of the Los Angeles Lakers says he takes “full responsibility” for his role in starting Saturday’s brawl that also involved Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo. All three players were suspended. Brandon received more suspensions; however, he says he is surprised his suspension wasn’t longer,
He says, “I’m happy it’s only for but I know I got to control my emotions a little better. He will return to the court October 29 for the Lakers’ games against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Brandon’s father, Donal, who is retired collegiate and high school referee told USA Today Sports that his son has been mentally “trained correctly” on where to “direct his frustration.” But on Saturday Brandon could not control his anger.
On Monday, he also apologized to all his teammates for letting his temper get the best of him. He says, “It’s my full responsibility. I think I’m the one that caused action and I’m going to take full responsibility for every action that I did. A hundred percent that I was wrong for my teammate.”
Rajon Rando said he didn’t feel obligated to address the team regarding his actions.
