Probably belongs in the NBA thread but Durant deserves mention in here too since I know most of us are fans of him.
Gotta love this guy. That's the heart of a competitor and the pride and the feistiness is Jordanesque.Kevin Durant disses Blake Griffin dunk
"I have no appreciation for it at all," said Perkins' Thunder teammate Kevin Durant. "It was a layup, I think. He threw the ball in and got fouled and made his free throw, so it was three points at the end of the day, no matter how it happened, how it went in the basket. I really wasn't impressed. He finished it. So what? We've moved on."
Durant wasn't surprised the play gained so much attention.
"I wasn't surprised because Blake is a poster child," Durant said. "He dunks the ball a lot and makes spectacular plays. If it wasn't against us, maybe I'd say it was a good play, but it was against us, so it was a bad play. I have nothing against Blake, don't get me wrong. But it was against us, so I've got to stick up for my teammate."
Plus I think he said what most of us are thinking. The NBA and by extension have ****ing crammed Blake Griffin down our throats to the point we're choking on him. We get it. He's a huge talent with potential to be a true great but come on already. His farts don't smell like roses. And he didn't deserve to win ROTY as a sophomore... still bitter about that. And he sure as **** didn't deserve to win that dunk contest over Javale or even DeRozan really... also bitter about that. It was a cool "dunk" even though he got stoned by Perkins and barely got to the rim but it's not like it was some once in a season amazing event like ESPN made it out to be.
