I want to interject before we even get started. I thought about this headline for so long. I initially wanted to call it a “missed dunk call,” but there wasn’t a call, and the dunk was actually made, so it doesn’t make any sense. It also can’t be a made dunk no-call because, well, that doesn’t make sense. While “made dunk that didn’t count” seems the most appropriate for the headline, it’s missing the gravity of accountability.
You see, last night, one of the most bizarre plays in Houston Rockets (and possibly all of basketball) history happened.
