NBA player Martell Webster's bonehead play

It always amazes me when I see a professional athlete do something absolutely stupid during the course of the game. These are people whose play games for a living. It is their job. They get paid extravagant amounts of money and yet they somehow don't know how to play the game they play for a living. Take Martell Webster of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Down 3 points with 4.9 seconds left Webster steals the ball and instead of attempting a 3 point shot to tie the game and send it to overtime, he drives to the hoop for a dunk, which apparently he didn't know was only worth 2 points.

The look on teammate Brad Miller's face at 0:26 in the video says everything.

For your information, Martell Webster's salary is $5,256,000 for the 2012 season. To play basketball. And he can't even remember how far down his team is, something most junior high basketball players know. Pitiful.
