Jarrett Jack threw Dorell Wright's shoe into the 10th row during a NBA game.

The Golden State Warrior have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2012-13 season. Nobody expected them to be anywhere near where they are at right now. At least not with this roster. But they are currently 5th in the West and much of their success has come from an improved defense. Mark Jackson has instilled new defensive principles into this team and you can see Jarrett Jack using one of them here:

Who knew Jarrett Jack would close 2012 with arguably one of the greatest moment in the NBA history. This is what you would call a perfect play. First, Jack breaks the distance record of shoe thrown in an NBA game by an NBA player, and then knocks down a three on the other end to complete it. He even added an evil smug at the end to put the cherry on top. I bet that was not the way former Warrior, Dorell Wright thought he would be welcomed back in his old arena.

If you are wondering, there are other players that have thrown their opponent's shoes out of their reach and coincidentally the victims were all embarrassed in their former home.

Metta World Peace was of course involved in one these incidents. As a matter of fact, he might be the innovator of this movement. Trevor Ariza should be proud to be the first.

Dwyane Wade, who is slowly gaining a rep of being a dirty player after sending his leg directly into Ramon Sessions's reproductive organ, was part of the sneaker throwing history too.

The NBA is the best.
