5 possessions. That’s how many possessions Robin Lopez played with just 1 shoe. So it was understandable why he looked so annoyed when Amir Johnson slapped the ball out of a trainer’s hand when he was trying to give it to the mascot abuser.
At least this incident didn’t happen during live play like when Will Barton threw Arizan’s shoes out of bounds last month.
The funniest thing about the Ariza incident is it wasn’t the first time a player has thrown his shoe out of bounds: Ron Artest did it back in 2009.
