There were so many Wizardly things about Self-Dunk Gate, from JaVale McGee saying “Apparently, if you get a fast break and throw it off the backboard in the third quarter, and you’re 1-11, you’re not supposed to do stuff like that” to the fact that all anyone was talking about following yet another loss was a made basket by the losing team.
But the most Wizardly thing was easily Nick Young, wearing those glasses, saying this about McGee.
“Some big Kahunas,” he said. “I would have never did that. You know, that’s tough. But I salute to him for being that brave to even think of doing that.”
Indeed. A salute to bravery. We should all be so brave. We should all have such Kahunas. Video below, via Comcast SportsNet.
