People aren’t thrilled with the hyped reaction to this Marcus Smart play

While in Las Vegas for an adidas Basketball event, Celtics guard Marcus Smart showed no mercy against a random opponent in a game of one-on-one. The self-proclaimed “junkyard dog” had his defender on the ground but waited for him to get up before drilling a shot at the top of the key.

A crowd of teenagers erupted in cheers at the move, but the reception wasn’t nearly as positive on Twitter. After NBA agent George Langberg shared a clip of the play…
