President Obama recommends a shirt policy for J.R. Smith

Obama: C’mon, son, put on a shirt

There is a strong possibility that Cleveland Cavalier J.R. Smith still may be strutting around town in his shirtlessness. He was shirtless in Vegas after the Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. He stepped off the plane to greet Cleveland fans shirtless. He participated in the Cavaliers championship parade shirtless.

President Barack Obama called Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue to congratulate him for the team’s win and had a message for Smith & Co.

“Tell J.R. and everybody to put on a shirt. You can’t be just walking around without a shirt,” said Obama.
