P.J. Hairston is still a young man who’s going to learn to make better choices over time. Punching a high school kid during a pickup game was not one of them.
Hairston is with his Charlotte Hornets teammates preparing for life as a rookie and took time out of his busy schedule to issue an apology to Hornets fans for his not so bright decision.
“I want to apologize to the Hornets organization and our fans for creating this distraction. As this is now a legal matter, I cannot comment on the situation any further. I am truly sorry for any embarrassment that I have caused.”
