Jamal Murray Waved Bye-Bye To Kentavious Caldwell-Pope After Pump-Faking Him Into The Next County On A Breakaway Bucket
You can say what you want about Jamal Murray and his propensity to rub his way right under the skin of his competition. In just a year and change, he's clearly put together a pretty extensive package of pettiness at the expense of his opponent's feelings...
Just don't say that him waving goodbye to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope wasn't just as much a gracious show of good manners as it was a good old fashioned act of mockery. Considering the quickness with which he took flight out of the frame, there's no telling when his primary defender would be returning to the court for pleasantries after getting pump-faked into a cheap seats. God forbid he wait around at the gate to see off the man whose travels he arranged.
Hell, I can even make the argument that KCP was the rude one for not biding Jamal Murray adieu before leaving the premises Jazzy Jeff-style. Dude didn't just get caught in the unforgiving position of trailing on a fast-break, he got caught Irish Exiting the hardwood. I were the Nuggets' guard I'd take offense too, if only because it's disrespectful to play that haphazard of defense on the primary scoring option for a team that has surprisingly taken the Western Conference by storm. Especially one who is nice enough to make sure you don't forget your 'L' on the way out...
