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.

You want to talk about me not playing that’s fine but don’t try an put me in something I have nothing todo with. An I’m not the only one!— JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) October 28, 2017
Show been trash sine #skip left anyway— JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) October 28, 2017
“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.
