"What Brandon did, I don't think it was dirty."
In the final seconds of Golden State's blowout win over the Wizards at Oracle Arena last night, JaVale McGee jacked up a three pointer in Brandon Jennings face, so Jennings blatantly shoved him to the floor.
After the game Jennings stood by his decision, calling JaVale and the Warriors "disrespectful."
"It was very disrespectful," Jennings said. "Thank God he didn't go to the rack, it probably would have been worse for him. But any time like that, I think you should let [the] clock run out. I think it was already disrespectful that they were trying to get Draymond a triple-double, Steph was out there with 40. So, I just felt it was disrespectful."
"I'm old school. Like I said, he better be glad he shot that 3 and didn't go to the basket."
John Wall felt he did the right thing.
"Yep, totally agree."
"Whenever a team is up like that, supposedly, you just hold the ball and take a shot-clock violation. So, what Brandon did, I don't think it was dirty. I think it was the right play. You don't let nobody try to embarrass you and I think that's what they were trying to do."
Here's what some of the Warriors players, including JaVale had to say about the play.
"I'm glad Brandon fouled me," he said. "I was going to air ball that 3. Shout out to Brandon Jennings."
"Brandon isn't going to do anything," Matt Barnes told ESPN. "But I understand where he's coming from. I would just wrap somebody up in that situation, but it is what it is. He's not going to do anything."
