Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith called out ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith in a series of tweets Saturday. Earlier his this week, Stephen A. Smith called out J.R. Smith for wearing a hoodie on the bench, saying the hoodie reminded white people of Trayvon Martin, and that NBA players shouldn’t wear hoodies on the bench.

Here’s what the Cavs guard tweeted:

“And in Game 1, when they played against Boston, J.R. Smith was sitting on that bench in the fourth quarter with a hoodie on. I don’t know why the hell Nike made these damn uniforms that have hoods attached to it, by the way. You got a lot of those white folks in the audience that think this is Trayvon Martin being revisited. And I’m not joking about. The bench is no place for somebody to be wearing hoodies,” Stephen A Smith said.
