Kyle O'Quinn tried to play defense but slapped the hell out of a teammate instead

There’s the right way to play defense, and there’s the wrong way to play defense. And then there’s Kyle O’Quinn‘s technique, which involves whacking a teammate in the face while attempting to block a shot.

O’Quinn tried to block Marc Gasol’s running hook during the New York Knicks’ Friday night matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies, but he went wide left. Instead of getting ball, he cupped rookie teammate Marshall Plumlee right in the grill.

The Knicks lost, 101-88.
