deadspin.com – The Cavaliers announced a surprise one-game suspension for J.R. Smith Thursday night before their 108-97 loss to the 76ers, and now that “detrimental conduct” has come to light. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin, Smith threw a bowl of soup at Cavs assistant coach Damon Jones, and it would’ve taken me a hundred thousand guesses to get to that.
Unfortunately, Windhorst and McMenamin don’t specify the type of soup Smith threw, or whether it was hot. The intent doesn’t really make a difference, since throwing soup at someone is rude as hell regardless of its temperature, but hopefully Jones wasn’t scalded by some chicken noodle.
This is easily the best sports related headline these eyes have seen in like 8 years. I believe it was confirmed that it was chicken tortilla soup. There’s so many questions here…did he throw it like a frisbee?! Or did he just do it food fight style?
