JR Smith is just as famous for his antics as he is for his skill on the basketball court. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ shooting guard is constantly in the news for the wrong reasons.

It is almost too dumb to believe. After the game Smith tried to avoid questions about the play and said that he didn’t know he was in the game. While there is probably no way that is true, the play itself was so dumb that he may be telling the truth.
