Sorry for getting this up a bit late, but I was on my All-Star Break too this weekend. Greg Monroe pulled off one of the best moments of the weekend, baiting John Wall into attempting a highlight dunk only to sneak in and throw the ball away. Don’t worry, Wall pulled off the move he wanted to do later and wasn’t super upset about it (although the crowd certainly was), via Royce Young and Ben Golliver of CBS Sports:
Wall was able to laugh it off too, although he said he has plans to get revenge when the Wizards host the Pistons on Mar. 26.
“It’s just fun. Don’t get mad at him for it. He did it so I’m going to try to dunk on him when we play them… It was funny. I was going to try something else but he took it away from me. The crowd didn’t like it. You get a little upset but it’s an All-Star Game. We’re having fun. You just let it go.”
As the players filed into post-game media availability, Monroe ran ahead of the pack to snag a Gatorade bottle that had been placed on the table of New Jersey Nets guard MarShon Brooks.
“Are you going to steal that too?” Brooks asked, incredulous.
