J.R. Smith arrives for Game 4 in style
Friday June 12th, 2015

Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith knows how to make an entrance.

Smith arrived at Quicken Loans Arena for Game 4 of the NBA Finals on a Phunkee Duck​, which is dubbed as “the next step in the evolution of transportation.” 

After averaging 18 points per game in the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks, Smith has struggled at times against the Golden State Warriors, so perhaps he's hoping changing things up with the Phunkee Duck​​ entrance is a good luck charm.

Riding in by balancing on a Phunkee Duck​ is pretty impressive, though Tom Withers of the AP notes that that Smith nearly took a tumble once he hit the carpet.
