Tyson Chandler is a former Defensive Player of the Year Award winner, so when it comes to blocking shots it's nothing real out of the ordinary. But swatting sneakers? That's a new one.

Midway through the third quarter of the Maverick's game against the Warriors, Golden State's Marreese Speights lost his sneaker and actually played a full possession with just one shoe on. After teammate, and future signature sneaker athlete, Stephen Curry picked up the shoe and tossed it to Speights, Chandler swatted it out out midair sending it a few rows back like the hundred of shots he's blocked during his career. Not really knowing what to do, the American Airlines Center crowd erupted into raucous cheers.
