Shoe block

Is this legal?

Minnesota Timberwolves' Taj Gibson attempted to block a shot in the NBA with his shoe, which slipped off in the previous play.

It didn't look like he made contact.

If he had made contact with the ball, would it be a violation, unsportsmanlike foul, play on, or what?

Gotta give him props for effort play though.

I reckon it’s a shoe in for play of the day.

I'm sure there would be something hidden in the by-laws of the game where a player can't use props, or else they could all start using those big foam hands in defence, or maybe Freddy Kruger style gloves to give them extra reach.

I agree with you, definitely a shoe in for the play of the day
