John Wall's dunk was NOT cool

Am I the only fan who was disappointed when Wall decided to take that breakaway to the rim himself, over John Lucas III?

Nick Young was open under the basket. Young was already on his way to a poor shooting night, and sometimes an easy layup or dunk can get a player started. We needed offense all night, and Wall is our PG, whose primary responsibility is to get his teammates involved. A savvier defender than Lucas might have drawn a charge there, and it would have been another turnover for Wall.

To me that play embodied the selfish, problematic style of play that has been discussed all season. I would have much rather seen Wall make the pass and get the assist.

Watch the replays, Young doesn't even congratulate his teammate after an impressive And 1. He simply turns and walks away. I don't really blame him, and it's disappointing that our franchise PG is contributing to lack of team ball.

And I'm the fan who gets laughed out by friends for my eternal optimism and faith! I understand that the play was an incredible display of athleticism. But in the context of the game, and the team, I don't understand how this play can be celebrated. At all.

Does anyone agree? Am I crazy? Help me out here.
