Dirty for sure, but I can’t say I don’t respect the move. That’s not a popular angle to take considering cool Twitter is condemning Dedmon, but what are you supposed to do when you’re without Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, and now David Lee? Just die softly to setup the Warriors-Cavs rematch? Hell no.
Kawhi had his ankle taken out with some BS closeout by Zaza Pachula, so you might as well get some blood in return.
