J.R. Smith Stops Playing Defense To Say Hi To Jason Terry, Gives Up Dunk

J.R. Smith isn’t known as an elite defensive player, and that was evident Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard thought it would be a good idea to say hello to Bucks guard Jason Terry as Milwaukee was getting ready to inbound the ball. Tony Snell, who Smith was supposed to be guarding, cut to the basket and slammed home a free dunk as a result.

Smith’s teammates weren’t pleased, as you can imagine.

Never change, J.R., never change.
