KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cocking his arm back, Dexter Pittman swooped in for an emphatic slam, the kind that sets the tone for the game, brings the crowd to its feet.Instead, Pittman hung himself up on the rim, his first shot caroming away as he staggered back, barely able to keep his feet.A humiliating moment? Maybe for a split second. But Pittman more than made up for it.
