J.R. Smith sprayed a crazy amount of champagne at Cleveland's celebration party

The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the comeback to end all comeback as they beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals. It was a time for celebration as the franchise took the Larry O'Brien trophy to Ohio for the first time.

Following game seven of their success where they won the title at the Oracle Arena, the team went to Las Vegas to celebrate their historic night.

According to Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins, J.R. Smith was really enjoying himself and sprayed an incredible amount of champagne during a party at XS Nightclub.

In his article about LeBron James, Jenkins wrote: "On June 20, around 3 a.m. at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas, the Cavaliers lost track of him. While they toasted their title poolside at XS Nightclub—where Smith sprayed $23,000 worth of champagne, according to credible estimates—James slipped out the door. He wound up at Allegro, an Italian restaurant on the casino floor, sitting silently over a Margherita pizza."


J.R's future is still up in the air but he will go down in history as a Cleveland Cavaliers legend following his role in the victory.

The former Knicks man found his range from three-point land and was a valuable asset to take advantage of the double-teams on James and play the role of third option after the King and Kyrie Irving.

He may not go back to Cleveland next season - the franchise still wants him but it may not be possible - but he has written his name into folklore. He's not just the guy who couldn't find a t-shirt.
