Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith earned his one-game suspension from the team Thursday by throwing a bowl of soup at assistant coach Damon Jones, multiple sources with knowledge of the incident told ESPN.
Jones, a former Cavs player, has been back with the organization since 2014. He worked his way up from an assistant coach with the Canton Charge of the G League to Cleveland, where he is a trusted voice for head coach Tyronn Lue.
Smith will return to practice Friday, according to Lue, and resume his starting shooting guard spot Saturday when the Cavs host the Denver Nuggets. Just another one of LeBron’s cronies.
You can see the two of them while they were teammates below. JR is the soup Nazi, hilarious. No soup for you Damon!!
