Delonte West probably thought nobody was paying attention. After all, the play was blown dead and everyone seemed to be heading down the court the other way. So when he thought nobody was watching, he tried to throw down a thunderous dunk in frustration.
Except it didn't work. In fact, it didn't even come close to working. It was like a little kid believing they could dunk, only to be rejected by the bottom of the rim. In other words, Delonte West needs to be dunking on a nine-foot hoop.
Pretty much sums up the Mavericks day. Good try, you guys!
