NEW YORK -- The NBA warned New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith about the shoelace stunt he pulled on Dallas' Shawn Marion on Sunday, a league source confirmed Tuesday.

Smith untied Marion's shoelaces during the second quarter of the Knicks' 92-80 win over the Mavericks. The NBA issued a warning, which was first reported by the Bergen Record and New York Post.

Mike Woodson said he planned to speak with his shooting guard before playing the Detroit Pistons Tuesday night concerning the shoelace incident.

"He shouldn't be doing stuff like that," Woodson said of Smith.
