If you win the NBA title, you get to spend a day hanging on to the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Most players invite family and friends around to bask in the glow and remember a championship run.

J.R. Smith took the trophy to McDonald’s.

Because he’s J.R. Smith, that’s why. Just be happy he’s wearing a shirt. And he posted about it on Snapchat, which the folks at Sports Illustrated saved for posterity.

Smith has been out injured but reportedly is ahead of schedule with his recovery and should be back mid-March. The Cavaliers need him back and ready to go for the playoffs — and “ready to go for the playoffs” means laying off the McDonald’s. That’s not on the training table.
