The Toronto Raptors and the Chicago Bulls have both been criticized internally and externally to the teams that they are underperforming thus far this season given the talent on their rosters. Often complacency is sited by fans, coaches and even the players. But I think I just saw a play that takes the cake when it comes to complacency.
In the middle of the live game action in their game this weekend, Raptors Guard Jarrett Jack received a pass on the perimeter. He then notices his shoelace is untied. So while he’s holding the ball he bends down and slowly/calmly ties up his shoe. If that wasn’t odd enough, it got weird when Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls just stood there and watched without trying to steal the ball from him. Is there some sort of honor system i’m not aware of? Is the NBA just a more organized version of your local recreation center pick up game? Anyhow, have a laugh, you may not see this again for a while:
