The overarching emblem of the Cavaliers’ first NBA win was, without a doubt, national treasure J.R. Smith’s shirtless torso; from the time that the Cavs won the playoffs, J.R. removed his shirt and did not put one back on until four days later, a commitment that really exemplifies the dedication that J.R. has become legendary for in the league.
His insouciant approach to clothing (and lack thereof) after the Game 7 win was not only inspirational, but downright epic, even drawing the attention of President Obama, who later implored the Cavaliers’ Coach Lue, “Tell J.R. and everybody to put on a shirt, though. He can’t be just walking around without a shirt for a whole week.”
Obviously, Smith’s casual approach to greatness via shirtlessness is something we should all aspire to, but in case your life includes situations where you would like to be sans shirt, but logistically cannot, there’s now a genius solution that will allow you to wear a shirt but resemble a shirtless J.R. Smith.
Thanks to Cleveland-based Fresh Brewed Tees in collaboration with the one and only Earl Joseph Smith III, you can now proudly rock a shirt that looks just like J.R.’s bare and heavily tattooed torso, for the days when you just need to appear shirtless and heavily tattooed.
May we all live life like shirtless J.R. Smith.
