You don’t know this, but you and I have been having the same recurring dream for the better part of the last five years. I don’t want to give away too much, but let’s just say it involves you, me, Tyrus Thomas, a Dance Dance Revolution machine, and a hilarious night of wacky misadventures.
Strange as it seems, that dream has been made a reality. Don’t ask questions. Just watch.
If Shumpert was faking as an excuse for missing, he sold it hard. Defending 4-on-5 on the other end, Cleveland ceded a 3-pointer. Then, Shumpert remained hunched over while the Cavs brought the ball up-court. It seems Shumpert might have been popping back in a dislocated finger, which jibes with him staying in the game – and shows his toughness.
But it also doesn’t erase the shame of hurting yourself while missing an open dunk.
