J.R. Smith Caught Sleeping During Coach David Blatt’s Halftime Speech

During game 6 of the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers were in a dog fight with the Golden State Warriors. At halftime Cavs coach David Blatt was giving a motivational speech to rally his troops. ABC cameras were there to capture the footage and in it you can see JR Smith slumped with eyes closed.

JR Smith has been shooting under 30 percent in what has been a terrible NBA finals performance. So even though this the biggest game of his career and he’s struggling, of course J.R. decided to fall asleep when he should be paying attention to his coach.
