Marcus Smart spoke to the media, off the top of his head without a statement, he said:
I want to apologize to … my teammates, my coaching staff, Coach Ford. This is not how I condone myself. This is not how the program is ran, this is not how I was raised. I let my emotions get the best of me.
It’s something that I can’t have happen again. It’s a lesson I have to learn from. The consequences that are coming with it I’m taking full responsibility. No fingers are pointing, this is all upon me.
I want to say that I truly apologize to those who are important to me. I feel like I let my teammates down. Those guys mean a lot to me and not to be able to be out there with them hits me in my heart.
I have a lot of people that look up to me a lot of little kids. I truly apologize, this is not me, and I really do apologize for it. I take full responsibility and the consequences that come with it.
