ESPN's David Jacoby, in an interview with former Cavalier shooting coach Damon Jones, learned additional details of the infamous soup-throwing incident involving J.R. Smith in March, 2018.
That J.R. Smith was angered with Jones and hurled chicken tortilla soup in his direction was known. Jacoby learns from Jones that both the soup and
the bowl were hurled, and that it was fresh out of the pot, in fact the first
bowl out of the pot.
"It was hot as hell," Jones said.
The soup incident became a viral meme during the Cavaliers drama-filled 2017-2018 campaign, the final season with LeBron James. J.R. Smith, still under contract with the Cavs, has not been with the team for most of the season.
