April 23, 2017 – In game 4 of the Boston Celtics – Chicago Bulls matchup, Robin Lopez of Chicago somehow ended up losing his shoe. Jae Crowder tosses his shoes out of bounds perhaps for safety, perhaps to keep Robin out of the game, and at that point Robin decides he has to retaliate with some shenanigans.
Unfortunately for the Bulls, the Celtics ended up winning the game 104 -95 to tie up the series at 2 a piece.
On Sunday, January 15, 2017 the Chicago Bulls visited the Memphis Grizzlies, and in the third quarter, Robin Lopez of the Bulls was passed the ball as he was cutting to the basket. Unfortunately for him, he was not looking and it hit him right in the face. Fortunately for the Bulls, it bounced right to Taj Gibson who slammed it home. Immediately afterwards, Robin looked towards the scorer’s table and gestured for the assist.
The Bulls (21-21) would end up defeating the Grizzlies (25-18) 108-104.
