Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert says it what was wrong for him to criticize his teammates in late March.
“You know, I think that I should’ve kept my frustrations to myself or just in the locker room,” Hibbert said on “ESPN First Take.”
“I will admit that it wasn’t the best thing to do. I’ll learn from that, and I was wrong. There are better ways to handle that than going to the media. All in all, I learned. I talked to my teammates; they talked to me. I’m willing to accept the criticism. It wasn’t the best thing to do.”
Hibbert called his teammates selfish following a 91-78 loss to the Washington Wizardson March 28.
“Some selfish dudes in here,” the center told reporters. “Some selfish dudes. I’m tired of talking about it. We’ve been talking about it for a month.”
The Pacers secured the Eastern Conference’s top seed, but went 10-12 in their final 22 games.
Over the past four games, Hibbert has scored just nine points on 3-of-28 shooting.
The Pacers host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
