I don't think I am downplaying anything. It was a great play.

However, I woke up with texts and social networking making it seem god-like.

I saw the video, underwhelming.

GREAT play, but not as serious as some are making out to be.

Hell, they could have called a foul.

In all honesty, I will say that watching replays and such don't give it the effect of just watching the game as it happens and then Perkins getting nuked on.

I think I suffered from people over-hyping it.

Great play, but all this, 'dunk of the year' etc hype, way out of hand.

On the other hand, Clippers were hot last night. Good win.

The Clipps were up big time on the Thunder... then the Thunder comes back.. then all of a sudden it was like a Matrix glitch and the Clippers pull a Tmac 13 in 35 on the Thunder... then halftime comes and they're playing again but not matrix like... then bam, Blake just super smashed it over Perk's head out of nowhere... so people were excited, and it was an exciting play

I don't think it was hyped... like i tell people about MJ, sometimes it was the play that led up to the dunk or the situation that led up to the dunk that made it even more exciting than normal.

here's the part where he says it

Kyle Weidie of Truth About It on John Wall vs. Derrick Rose: "Wall come out in full-on attack mode versus Rose. No, he wasnít trying to match a league M.V.P. in a contest of who could piss the furthest, rather, he had to look for his offense in hopes of sparking something for Washington against a stingy Chicago defense. But the fact that Rose had 13 points (6-8 FGs) and 3 assists in the first quarter to Wallís 8 points (3-7 FGs) and zero assists in the period pretty much sums up the story of the night. When asked after the game, and in light of Roseís performance, about the difficulties of developing decision-making as a point guard (when to look for yourself, when to look for teammates), Wall said, 'Itís not hard when you got guys like Kyle Korver that can make shots, and you can run off down screens and a guy like Carlos Boozer that can pick-and-pop, and Luol Deng and guys you can run plays for that make shots and create their own shots, itís kind of easy.' Sure it is, John, sure it is."

This preety much sums it up. Rose wasn't always in a top 3 team of the league, and he worked his *** off to get to where he is now.

He basically just took a shot at his whole team, which people aren't seeing.

Wall has as much TALENT as Rose, and Wall knows this. This means that he probably wants out, so he can go somewhere to get better and compete with guys like Rose.
