Giannis Antetokounmpo was ejected in the second quarter after receiving a flagrant foul 2 for head-butting Moe Wagner during the Milwaukee Bucks' 126-113 win over the Washington Wizards.
"Terrible action. If I could go back, turn back time and go back to that play, I wouldn't do it. But at the end of the day, we're all human, we all make mistakes. I think I've done a great job all year, in my career at keeping my composure and focus on the game but at the end of the day, we're human and make mistakes," said Antetokounmpo after the game.
It was Antetokounmpo's fourth ejection of his career.
Mike Budenholzer added that the league needed to review several plays that lead up to the ejection before doling out punishment.
"Giannis has been dealing with this for a long time. He's a MVP. People are gonna try him. He normally is phenomenal and today was a slip up. I think it's probably in some ways, it could be one of the best things that happened today and it's a learning moment."
