President Barack Obama called Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue to congratulate him on Cleveland’s championship.

Just as Obama was wrapping up the call, he had one more important message he wanted relayed to J.R. Smith, who has gone shirtless essentially since the Cavaliers won the title.


“Tell J.R. and everybody to put on a shirt, though.”

“You can’t just be walking around without a shirt for the last – the whole week.”

“Now, Shumpert’s taking off his shirt. Kyrie is taking off his shirt. C’mon, man.”

“But, I guess if you’re built like that.”
