Was this a “Classy act” of sportsmanship or a “Silly act” by an individual that’s main goal is to help his team win?

After  poking the unstoppable Tony Parker in the eye midway through the 4th quarter, Marc Gasol went to check on Parker who was laying on the ground instead of running down the court and trying to take advantage of the opposing team being short handed for the play.

I say it was a classy act by Marc. His Grizzlies were down by 8 in the game with 6 minutes to go and down by 3 in the series with 6 minutes to go.  If you aren’t going to win the game then you should do your best to act like a winner and that’s what the defensive player of the year did on this play.

With that said, I still laugh every time I see this silly commercial
