This failed dunk attempt by Derrick Williams tells you all you need to know about the Sacramento Kings.
The Kings thumped the Chicago Bulls by 29 on Monday, but all anybody will probably remembers is this ugly, failed off the backboard dunk attempt by Williams.
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Williams said of the kind of dunk he was attempting.
Kings coach Michael Malone was not amused and removed Williams from the game.
“Derrick’s a good kid so there’s nothing malicious in that but I don’t want to disrespect the Bulls,” Malone said. “I don’t want to disrespect (Bulls coach) Tom Thibodeau, I have too much respect for him. At that point in the game when you’re up big, just lay the ball in. Derrick wasn’t trying to showboat or disrespect anybody but I told our guys, be good to the game.”
“The hardest part was trying to find something to say to him after making that play,” said DeMarcus Cousins. “I don’t know. You’re going to have to ask D-Will about that.”
