Will Someone Remind Josh Smith (and the Refs) That He Only Has One Pivot Foot? (Video)
I don’t know who’s more to blame here: Josh Smith or the ref who turned a blind eye to the dozen little stutter steps that the Houston Rockets forward managed to sneak into a possession with no dribbles.
Just kidding. I blame the ref. It’s the players’ job to do dumb stuff like this, and it’s the ref’s job to blow the whistle on that sh*t.
Take a look at the video here, and try not to dry heave:
This play reminds me of when I was little and thought that I could alternate pivot feet to twist and turn my way down the court without dribbling. It wasn’t a good look then, and it’s even worse on a pro NBA player. He should know better. And so should the ref.
