Even after a humiliating loss, Denver Nuggets coach Brian Shaw still had a sense of humor.

The Grizzlies crushed the Nuggets in Memphis on Thursday night. Their stifling defense limited Denver to just 11 points in the first quarter, 14 points in the third, and 69 points overall. In short, the Grizz made the Nuggets look like a college team. It was ugly.

After the game like that, you expect a coach to be in a pretty foul mood. You expect that the last thing he’ll want to do is talk about how embarrassing his team’s performance was. However, Brian Shaw was in relatively good spirits, opening up his post-game interview with a joke.

Watch him pull a Marshawn Lynch:

You can’t lose with “I’m just here so I don’t get fined” right now. Even Katy Perry was killing it with that line at her Super Bowl press conference yesterday. I wouldn’t be surprised if President Obama drops this in a press conference this week. He’s always making hip cultural references.

It’s a shame sports reporters don’t find all this as funny as the rest of us, though. They need to lighten up a bit.
