Kevin Love accuses J.R. Smith of being drunk at Mayweather-McGregor fight

J.R. Smith was among the many superstars of sport who descended upon Las Vegas Saturday to attend the Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather Jr. super-fight. And an interesting photo posted by the Cleveland Cavaliers star inspired one of his teammates to accuse him of being “drunk as hell” at the event.

Smith took to Instagram to post of photograph of himself alongside wife Jewel that arguably depicted the Cavs player perhaps not in the soberest of conditions.

At least that’s how Kevin Love saw it, as he suggested as much in the Instagram post’s comments section.

“You drunk as hell (boiii),” Love wrote in his comment.

We may never know whether or not Smith was in fact highly intoxicated at the bout. But odds are either way that Smith and his wife greatly enjoyed attending the spectacle that ended with Mayweather beating McGregor with a 10th-round TKO.

And hey, at least Smith kept his shirt on for once. Probably.
