J.R. Smith tweets about Madden tournament after David Blatt’s firing

Friday January 22nd, 2016

The Cleveland Cavaliers fired head coach David Blatt on Friday, and J.R. Smith followed the news by firing off an incredibly cryptic tweet.

It appeared that Smith was having a great time watching the Madden Challenge, an online gaming tournament.

What does this mean? Is he simply trying to stay positive after his coach was fired? Does he not know?

You can’t blame J.R., though. The Madden Challenge really is lit.
