Yup, do your Zinedine Zidane, no matter your team lost opportunity to win champion, you won your own war.
You can fight at your neighbourhood, at your street, as sport star you should keep cool and help your team.
If someone like Garnett or Materazzi says some trash to you, say quietly something worse to them. Don't scream and don't behave like frustrated teenager or villager.
You act like "sport star" is a different kind of human being. I don't care who you are EVERYONE has there limits. and being in a heated physical competitive game like that I don't see how it is soo easy just to invoke your inner buddism and turn the other cheek. I know thats what you SHOULD do, but I can't see fault with anyone having a natural reaction to another person crossing the line
