Nah, he apologized cuz he knows what he did was wrong, and he was puttin himself, and his image in jeopardy. He was just as dissapointed in the loss as the rest were and still he was the only one that didn't show up. But why? It doesn't really matter anymore, the point is is that the season wasn't over just from HIM alone. He's not the reason why the Lakers didn't pull together down the stretch or at the start of the season. Surgeries and injuries are a part of the game, and playin the most games than any other NBA team for 3 years really affected us. They didn't pull together as a team, and the team lost, not one player. One man isn't an island.
