Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray was ejected from last night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks after receiving a Flagrant 2 foul. As you can see from the video below, the ejection was well-earned—he swatted Tim Hardaway Jr. right in the nuts!

What’s notable about this moment is not that Murray decided to goose Hardaway Jr.’s berries (Draymond Green has already made sure that it’s not shocking to see such a thing on a basketball court), but that he spent the next few minutes trying really hard to act like he didn’t do anything wrong.

Look at the face Murray made after a replay of his transgression was shown on the jumbotron:

Imagine seeing a video clip of you attacking a guy’s nards, shown on a very large screen, and then doing this:

Once the ejection was announced, Murray tried to sell his innocence even harder:

Preposterous! This whole proceeding is preposterous!
