J.R. Smith celebrates the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the Eastern Conference Finals by going to play golf

May 27, 2015

At the start of 2015, J.R. Smith was on a team with the worst record in pro basketball. Now a few months later, he's headed to the NBA Finals.

But first, it's time to celebrate by playing a little golf.

On Wednesday morning, Smith posted this photo indicating his plans to play and showing off the NBA Finals hat he's been wearing since the Cleveland Cavaliers finished off their sweep of the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night:

In fact, Smith and teammates LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert and Kendrick Perkins were so excited about the hats that they wore them in a post-game hot tub celebration as well:

Up next, the Cavs will likely face another avid golfer, Stephen Curry, and his Golden State Warriors. And because the Cavs made such quick work of the Hawks, they'll now have eight days off before the Finals start. Enjoy, J.R.
