NBA: LaMarcus Aldridge Says it’s Wrong for Warriors to Have 4 All-Stars & Spurs Have 1

The final sequence in the Thunder v. Spurs game 2 was one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen.  Thunder led the game 98-97 with 13.5 seconds left and had possession of the ball.  Dion Waiters tried to inbound the ball while Manu Ginobli played defense.  Waiters then threw the ball in to Kevin Durant but Durant was stripped by Danny Green who passed the ball ahead to Patty Mills who passed it to Manu Ginobli, who kicked it back to Mills who missed the ensuing three-point attempt.  LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard scrambled for the rebound but the buzzer went off and the game was over.  The referee later admitted to missing the offensive foul committed by Waiters but a ton more happened those last few seconds.
