The top 10 plays on Sportscenter every night always contain some that are just spectacular defensive stops. These guys are witches. But these same guys don't go nuts pounding their chests....they just act like they've been there before and are expected to make those plays. Basketball players....well not so much....got to make sure you know just how special they are after doing something even relatively average you'd expect them to do for what they're paid. Annoying.

Personally seeing Big baby Davis drool like an idiot while flexing was an entertaining image (in the same way that a train wreck is entertaining).
This is also why "professional wrestling" has been around for years despite being fake - demonstrative personalities sell. We all know the NBA is trying to market individuals.
