KNICKS’ SMITH FINED FOR UNTYING RIVALS’ SHOES

0

NEW YORK: Repeatedly trying to unknot the shoelaces of rival players during NBA games has cost New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith $50,000 (36,850 euros). The league imposed the punishment upon the 28-year-old American on Wednesday after he attempted to untie an opposing player’s shoes on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) during New York’s 89-85 home victory over Detroit. The NBA had already issued Smith a warning about such moves after he untied the left shoelace of Dallas forward Shawn Marion during a second quarter free throw attempt last Sunday when the Knicks beat the visiting Mavericks 92-80.
