Kevin Love Gave J.R. Smith Crap For Being ‘Drunk As Hell’ At Mayweather-McGregor


J.R. Smith might have had a few too many at Saturday’s boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor.

The Cleveland Cavaliers guard, like many other high-profile athletes, traveled to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to watch the superfight, Mayweather won via technical knockout in Round 10. During the fight, Smith shared a curious Instagram photo of him and his wife, Jewel Harris, that caught the attention of one of his Cavs teammates.

Here’s the ringside picture:

If you’ve ever seen Smith on the basketball court, you know he typically displays much more energy than we see here. So, what gives?

Well, Cavs forward Kevin Love thinks he knows the reason.

Love appears to think Smith was “drunk as hell (boiiii),” while Cavs center Tristan Thompson also offered a similar take.

We have a different theory, though: As many noticed, Saturday’s megafight was delayed due to pay-per-view issues. So, we’re going to give Smith a break and assume he was just really, really tired.
