Happened to catch a bit of PTI today- which in my opinion is one of the worst shows on television- and saw this segment about JR's 360 alley-oop dunk last night. Wilborn and Kornheiser were arguing whether the dunk was showboating on the part of JR and alluding that this was another example of the Nuggets being immature, self motivated, and incapable of being a team in serious contention. It was a hell of a play by JR going up and getting that ball and throwing it down. It got me out of my seat texting my friends saying 'oh my god that was insane'
We all know this song and dance by ESPN and the experts. I'm not going to argue JR and the other Nugs don't act immature and self motivated in the coarse of a game,its the NBA, everybody acts that way all the time. I'm so sick of the national perception that ESPN is creating of the nuggets. Other teams act the same way, show disrespect for opponents, show boat and nothing is said to discredit them as a team. Lebron acts that way and the analyst are down on all fours. And while I'm angry with this perception of our Nuggets, we all know it ain't gonna change. That being the case-
Rock your gear
Embrace the hate !!
