Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith addressed his one-game soup-throwing suspension Saturday, admitting that even he found the internet's meme-mania reaction to be humorous. "Some of them were actually pretty funny," Smith said. "I understand that everything I do is going to have a meme or whatever behind it. That's just part of the day and age we live in. If this was 15 years ago, nobody would have even knew. It's just part of the game." Smith was suspended for the Cavs' 108-97 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers for throwing a bowl of soup at assistant coach Damon Jones on Thursday, multiple sources with knowledge of the incident told ESPN. Smith opted not to speak to the media Friday and offered little illumination Saturday when asked about what happened between him and Jones that led to the soup toss. When asked what further detail he could provide about the incident, Smith replied, "Nothing." He didn't even share what type of soup it was. "Uh," Smith said, "honestly I don't even remember." Smith would not say whether he believed the act deserved a suspension or not.
