DeMarcus Cousins Pokes Fun at Joakim Noah's Shooting Form

Joakim Noah has one of the NBA's most unconventional shot releases. The veteran center looks like he's revving up for a chest pass before he line-drives the ball with little arc or rotation.

During Friday's night game between the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings, DeMarcus Cousins questioned his opponent's form.

The Kings big man imitated Noah's approach after a rare free-throw make (he is shooting 31 percent from the charity stripe this season). It's hard to tell if Cousins was mocking his adversary or was genuinely confused by the technique.

Noah finished with just four points, but he grabbed nine rebounds and blocked two shots during New York's 103-100 win. With a shot like that, he needs to contribute in other ways.
