This was so weird. Robin Lopez lost his shoe in New York’s 120-114 win over the visiting Celtics Tuesday night. This happens sometimes on the court. Despite Lopez’s size-20 feet, he must wear them loose because one of those kicks slipped off and he was forced to play multiple possessions with a single shoe.
But it was what happened when a trainer tried to return to the shoe to Lopez during a stoppage in play that really alarmed us. That’s because Amir Johnson slapped the sneaker out of the trainer’s hand right as he was trying to make the exchange with Lopez.
Amir Johnson is a SAVAGE 😂 https://t.co/aOUtI4GW5r
