The hard times within the Cleveland Cavaliers organization continues. The trade deadline was a troublesome day for members of the Cavs as they sent away: Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, Jae Crowder, Iman Shumpert, and a first round pick. A big time roster overhaul to get their priorities straight and get on the right track.
Then it came out that there was more trouble in paradise… J.R. Smith was suspended for one game for “violating an unspecified team rule.” What could it possibly be? Missing a team flight? Failed drug test? Skipping out on practice? Nope.
According to multiple sources within ESPN, J.R. Smith’s suspension was in regard to an incident with assistant coach Damon Jones when Smith threw a bowl of soup (i’m not kidding) at his coach. No soup for you J.R.!
Smith has since served his suspension and has rejoined the team, along with regaining his spot in the starting lineup. But the hard hitting question still remains: What kind of soup was it? Is J.R. more of a minestrone guy? Maybe clam chowder? The world may never know.
