You ever play high school or college sports (hell even really competitive intramural schools)? You'd be lying or weren't playing in very competitive leagues if you never saw that shit happen. It's not anyone making an excuse but just saying that it's not rare or even unexpected. I guess i've almost grown immune to it or expect it You pull that bush move in those circumstances you get the shit beat out of you for being a punk. I don't get your point. It was a total punk move, by a professional athlete. Congratulations to the Mavericks; they played a hell of a series.
