Rajon Rondo addresses using gay slur toward referee Bill Kennedy

Rajon Rondo Bill Kennedy

Rajon Rondo on Monday addressed the recent incident in which he was suspended for making an offensive comment toward an official and not leaving the court in a timely fashion after being ejected.

Bill Kennedy, the referee Rondo blew up on, came out publicly as gay in an interview with Yahoo Sports over the weekend. In that same story, it was revealed that Kennedy told NBA officials Rondo used a gay slur during the outburst.

Rondo said he did not mean to disrespect Kennedy or anyone else.

While there’s no excusing what Rondo said, you’d hate to think he knew Kennedy is gay and was bashing him for that. Though it wouldn’t make it right, hopefully he meant what he said as more of a general insult than a personal attack.

You can see a video of the exchange between Rondo and Kennedy here.
