Marcus Smart Hilariously Described How He Learned To Execute A ‘Kip-Up’

Marcus Smart has garnered plenty of attention around the NBA for a slew of different things, and the most recent reason easily is among the most bizarre.

The Boston Celtics guard turned some heads when he casually executed a bizarre jump up — technically known as a kip-up — off the floor during Monday’s rout of the Chicago Bulls.

Plenty of people were impressed with the move, but Smart actually was a little surprised it had gotten so much attention.

So where did he learn such a move? Well…


If he keeps doing kip-ups, he’ll certainly be known around the league for more than just lockdown defense in no time.
