DeMar DeRozan has been in the form of his life this season and teams around the NBA are doing everything in their power to slow the Compton-native down.
The shooting guard did not have his finest game last night when he could only put 12 points and grab nine rebounds; quite the drop off from the 31.4 points he has been averaging this season.
Because of his quiet night, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook have been able to overtake the Toronto Raptors man in the league scoring charts.
However, Rudy Gay of the Sacramento Kings had a different idea of how to stop the prolific scorer.
During their contest at the Golden 1 Center, DeRozan lost his shoe while contest for the rock in and around the opposition's rim.
Swingman Gay casually picked up DeRozan's shoe and tossed it into the crowd, striking a man on the phone in the process.
Maybe that's what can happen in the NBA these days. If you're not paying attention to the fine action in front of you, expect a shoe to come flying your way.
The Kings now have a record of 5-9 after the victory that has been marred in controversy after Terrence Ross' last second three-pointer was chalked off.
