The game was over. You don't score if you're up and the defense has let up. The best part is since Durant is the media darling right now, ESPN won't touch this story. Even though he's only a teammate, since he's Durant's teammate, they don't want to draw any negative attention to Durant.
I remember years back when Ricky Davis was a rebound shy of a triple double and in the final seconds of a game they had already secured, he threw it off of the rim to get the last rebound for the triple double. The score keeper didn't give it to him and ESPN blasted him for a week straight. This happens and the anchors laugh about it.
and once again i dont know why people are comparing this to the davis situation. davis got so much flak over that because he shot it at the wrong basket, and thats why it didnt count as a rebound...thats what the big deal was about that, if we did it on the other side of the court i doubt anyone would have even heard about it
either way this isnt a big deal so i dont see why you think media should be touching the story...what story is there to touch? that a team ran up the score, that westbrook got the triple double when the hawks were chilling. what should espn be talking about?
