After serving a two-game suspension for his role in a fight with Kris Humphries of the Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo said he has not learned any lessons.

Rondo said he "wanted to be out there with my teammates" and that he was "glued in front of the TV" during the two games he missed. But when asked if there was a lesson to be learned from the suspension, Rondo said "no." This was Rondo's third suspension within the last year. He was suspended two games last year for throwing the ball at a referee and was suspended for Game 2 of last year's first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks for bumping an official.

This season Rondo is averaging 12.4 points, 12.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game. The Celtics went 1-1 during his suspension, beating the Portland Trail Blazers but losing to the Milwaukee Bucks. Rondo is eligible to return on Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
