These days it’s hard to believe that J.R. Smith and the Cleveland Cavaliers were ever at the center of NBA fans’ attention, but it wasn’t so long ago that this was the case. Of course I am not referring to the time LeBron James was Smith’s teammate and brought a title to Cleveland, but to the time J.R. Smith threw a bowl of soup at assistant coach Damon Jones.
Ever since the soup-throwing occurred just a little more than a year ago, NBA fans have been desperate for as many details from the incident as possible. Yesterday, we finally got some insight from one of the principles, when Jones went on the Jalen & Jacoby show and revealed that not only did Smith’s bowl of chicken tortilla soup nail him right in the shoulder, it was also quite hot:
Jones also said that he and Smith went three whole months without speaking a word to each other after the incident, but that they eventually talked it out and are friendly now. Now the only question that remains is why Smith threw the soup. Hopefully we’ll know the answer to that one by next year.
