So I don't think its a bad thing that after the dunk he taunted the other players to get the crowd and his players fired up and pumped so that they play better to keep the crowd going.
yea, that's true. there's no question that having the crowd behind a team generally gives them a boost of energy. but since it also fires the other team up (assuming they're any good) it's still a double-edged sword. better would be just to make a big play, taunt nobody, and let the play speak for itself. plenty for the crowd to get fired up over if they were paying attention.
personally i don't really like people cheering for me no matter what sport- it's distracting. i'd rather hear it from a teammate...
