The Last Angry Fan:
Golden State guard Jarret Jack knows that loose objects on the court are a hazard to players and officials alike, and when you come across a hazardous object like a shoe without a foot in it, you do the the most reasonable thing possible at that moment.
You throw it 10 rows deep into the stands. In the name of safety, of course.
During the Warriors-Sixers tilt Friday night, Dorell Wright lost his shoe during a poorly executed fast break, and when Jarret Jack hustled back on defense only to find Wright’s footwear laying haphazardly in the key, he grabbed it and nonchalantly threw the shoe into the stands and out of harm’s way. Jack followed up his shoe toss by nailing a three-pointer as the Warriors would end up grabbing the 96-89 victory.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an NBA player toss an opponent’s shoe into the stands, but I can’t recall ever seeing one thrown so deep into the crowd. I feel bad for the poor fan who caught Dorell Wright’s shoe ...

Jarret Jack knows that if you aren't cheating you aren't trying. He tossed 76ers forward Dorell Wright's shoe into the 10th row and then hit a deep 3 pointer to top it off. Not to mention the Warriors moved to 20-10 with their win over the 76ers last night. All in all it was a successful night for Jack and his teammates who got a great laugh in after the shoe toss...
SWEEP THE COURT
Tweet How do you slow down an NBA opponent on a fast break? Throw their shoe into the stands, which is what Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack did to former Warriors and current 76ers player Dorell Wright Friday night after Wright lost his right shoe while recovering a lose ball: So does that count [...]
Seriously, who throws a shoe?That's probably what Philadelphia 76ers forward Dorell Wright was thinking when he had his left shoe thrown into the stands by Warriors guard Jarrett Jack on Friday night.It happened as Wright lost his shoe during fastbreak attempt in the second quarter and keep an eye on Jack as he tracks down the shoe and tosses it into the stands beneath the basket...
Written By Clifford Sta Monica, Andrew Bynum’s mouth certainly contributed some to his stunted development but nearly as much as Kobe (and others) not feeding him the ball—and certainly not as much as Phil Jackson’s dumb decision not to play Andrew during the fourth quarters of dozens of games—particularly when the Lakers were getting their asses kicked under both boards...
Sixers’ Dorell Wright lost his shoe during the first half against the Warriors and Jarrett Jack made sure to keep him impaired as long as possible as he tossed the sneaker into the crowd only to come down on offense to drill a three pointer:
Dorell Wright of the Philadelphia 76ers lost his shoe during a play in their game against the Golden State Warriors and Jarrett Jack took advantage of the situation, sort of. Jarrett picked up the shoe and tossed it in the stands, because he isn’t that nice of a guy.

Saturday night's game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Philadelphia 76ers was a dogfight throughout. The game came down to the last half of the fourth quarter before the Blazers finally pulled out an 89-85 victory. The win may have come at a very high cost, though. With 9:01 remaining, Portland center Myers Leonard went up for a rebound and the Blazers No. 11 draft...
