After successfully untying Shawn Marion’s shoelaces against the Dallas Mavericks this past Sunday, Knicks’ J.R. Smith was warned by the league for his playful actions.
Last night, Knicks’ guard J.R. Smith struck again. Six minutes into the first quarter against Detroit, Smith had tried to untie Pistons’ center Greg Monroe’s shoelaces, but failed.
After the game, Knicks’ coach Mike Woodson was asked about his opinion on the entire situation and Woodson didn’t like it one bit.
“He shouldn’t be doing stuff like that,” the coach said. “I’m going to talk to him a little more about it when I get in there. His focus should just be on playing basketball. That’s what it’s about and those are things you just don’t do. You think you’ve seen it all and something creeps in.”
J.R. Smith’s fun and games is most definitely now being monitored by the NBA. How funny would it be if J.R. Smith were to get fined for untying shoes?
Surprisingly, when J.R. Smith was asked about his shoelace stunts after the Pistons’ game, the Knicks’ guard paid the question no mind.
“I wasn’t really too concerned about [getting fined],” Smith said.
