The Cleveland Cavaliers seemed to have forgotten to get off the bus when they arrived to the arena to play the Milwaukee Bucks tonight, getting blown out 118-101 in the worst game for them in the young NBA season.
But as bad as the entire team was, malcontent shooting guard J.R. Smith's play in the second quarter was so much worse.
omfg J.R. Smith decides to stop playing defense to say what's up to Jason Terry, gives up layup...PEAK J.R. 😂 https://t.co/oW0MJblJn7— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) November 30, 2016

As you can see in the video, during an inbounds play, Smith straight-up walked over to the Bucks' bench to give a high-five and some love to Milwaukee's Jason Terry. It wouldn't have been a problem, you know, if the ball hadn't then immediately been passed to the guy Smith was supposed to be defending, who had the easiest layup of his life.
I know people say these current NBA players are too friendly to one another, but, damn J.R., this is taking that to another level completely.
