The often shirtless J.R. Smith added another head-scratcher to his highlight real last night in a contest against the Milwaukee Bucks. With just under three minutes to play in the first half, Smith abandoned his coverage on Tony Snell to embrace the Jet, which of course led to a wide open dunk for Snell. It was pretty interesting to watch, especially considering Cavs’ coach Tyronn Lue calling Smith the “best defender on the team” last May.
Kyrie Irving and Iman Shumpert, as well as the rest of the world, could not seem to fathom why Smith would do such a thing, but then again, this is J.R. Smith we’re talking about here.
After the game, J.R.’s as of yet unnamed “alter ego” was being interviewed and claimed he didn’t even know he was in the game at the time??
You can’t make this shit up. I’d still take him back on the Knicks any day. The Bucks would win the game 118-101.
