    ESPN had it right:
    "He hasn't flashed the 'Three Goggles' gesture after any of his 226-career trifectas. He doesn't scream or yell after one of his picturesque step-back jumpers, and he doesn't stare defenders down after making them look foolish with any one of his array of post moves. He just plays the game. The right way."

    In comparison with McDermott, other stars pale when they "dance in the end zone" or some other excessive "in your face" post-play celebration. My high school coach, Richard "Toolie" Palmer, would say "Let's act like we've been here before."

    A class act both of them.
