Watch: Tyson Chandler blocks Marreese Speights' shoe

Saturday December 13th, 2014

Renowned blocker of basketballs Tyson Chandler has moved on to a new target: shoes.

During Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors, the Dallas Mavericks center was getting back on defense when Warriors forward Marreese Speights lost his shoe. Stephen Curry, being the great teammate and leader that he is for Golden State, picked it up and attempted to toss it back to Speights during the play.

Chandler was having none of that.

Here's how Speights shoe came off -- note that Curry even took time with the ball in his hands to get the shoe out of harm's way.

Curry's good will must've also been good fortune: the Warriors led 87-68 entering the fourth quarter.
