O.J. Mayo Abandons Defense to Tie Shoe, It Doesn’t Work Out

One problem many people have with the NBA is the perception that players don’t exactly kill themselves in the name of defense. The 82-game regular season is more of a marathon than a sprint, so it’s understandable if some energy budgeting takes place from time to time. But O.J. Mayo’s defense during last night’s Milwaukee Bucks-Denver Nuggets game is indefensible.

Instead of guarding Randy Foye, Mayo decided to casually tie his shoe for a solid seven seconds. This prohibited him from playing help defense — or even yelling help — as the Nuggets scored an easy bucket.

I love this game, you guys.
