JR Smith – Free Throw Defense

New York Knicks guard JR Smith was in the news recently for what even he described as a “knucklehead play” on the offensive end. Well it seems Smith is either losing his mind completely or simply trying to win back some respect on the defensive end of the floor, albeit during an opposition free throw attempt.

Check out the video below as Smith unties Shawn Marion’s shoelace just as Dirk Nowitzki takes his shot from the stripe.

Classic JR Smith behaviour, which will likely result in a quiet word from the league office.
