Barack Obama Thanks J.R. Smith For Wearing Shirt During Cavs’ White House Visit

1,078

The Cleveland Cavaliers were honored Thursday at the White House, and they all showed up in their best formal attire. Even J.R. Smith.

The Cavs shooting guard went on quite a few shirtless escapades in June after Cleveland won its first NBA Championship, including partying in Las Vegas after Game 7 against the Golden State Warriors, riding through the Cavs’ victory parade and even playing a round of golf. But Smith kept his shirt on for his trip to Washington, D.C., and President Barack Obama was thankful for the gesture.

You can’t really come back from a roasting by the leader of the free world, but, hey, at least Smith’s an NBA champ.
