Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been sidelined since December with a broken thumb, but he’s got a knack for making his way back into the headlines.
Smith recently took a trip to McDonald’s — not really news under normal circumstances — but this time he brought a special friend with him: the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Never one to be shy, Smith posted the photo below with the trophy and his delicious breakfast on Snapchat.

Is Smith’s looking for a McDonald’s partnership? Maybe.
Is it more likely that he was out cruising around with his championship trophy when he got a sudden craving for a sausage McMuffin and just had to stop? Definitely.
Smith is reportedly ahead of schedule in his recovery, and should be able to rejoin the Cavs in mid-March, just in time for their playoff run.
