Saturday afternoon, the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Iowa State Cyclones took part in another classic against one another, with the Cyclones coming out victorious in overtime. It was Oklahoma State’s first loss since Marcus Smart’s return from his suspension for his infamous altercation with a fan.
Aside from that altercation, another thing that Smart is maligned for is his constant penchant for flopping. So, while Smart was being introduced before the game today, the Iowa State fans poked a little fun at the star by partaking in a giant act of–well, flopping.
So, was Smart hurt by the gesture?
Surprisingly, no he wasn’t. Or at least he didn’t admit that as he said after the game that he thought it was actually quite amusing.

Hey, you know what they say, if you can’t have fun with yourself, then who can you have fun with?
Either way, the game itself was another outstanding outing for both and it would be a joy to see these two meet up in Kansas City this week for the Big 12 Tournament.
