This isn't even the same situation. Westbrook dunked through traffic on no particular individual. Love gave props to Russ for an amazing play that involved embarrassing no one, other than maybe the Kings' defense.
In the Griffin dunk's case, Perkins got dunked on, humiliated, and then decided to take backlash against one of the most disliked athletes in NBA history by only taking notice of his tweets.
You're absolutely right. I'm not sure I heard that dunk being called anything BUT the dunk of the year after it happened.
You're spot on with RBA as well. If all you're looking for is a reason to fault someone or hate someone; you'll find it. That's all this has become.
If it's simply the fact that he mentioned his own dunk, then why bring up the fact that "elite" players don't tweet? As if being a high-level professional ball player means you can't get excited about great plays. @ elite players don't get excited over plays like that.
