Be careful if you say something flagant to former New York Knick and current Cleveland Cavalier J.R. Smith. Reportedly, the Smith choked out a 19-year-old that had something slick to say when he passed on taking a pic with his group. 

Reports TMZ:

A 19-year-old man says he was CHOKED by Cleveland Cavs star J.R. Smith … and claims it was all because he made fun of Smith for getting traded out of New York.

The man behind the allegation is Justin Brown — who claims he and some friends encountered Smith at a NY pizza joint around 4 AM on Nov. 13th.

In a complaint filed with the NYPD, Brown claims Smith refused to take a picture with his group and an altercation ensued.

As Smith walked away, Brown shouted to the NBA star — “That’s why New York kicked you out, yo!”

Brown claims Smith then slammed him against a wall and choked him with his hands.

Brown filed the report 3 days after the incident.

We gotta side with Smith on this one.

It’s a late night, and you insult the man because he refused to take a picture with you? If you’re brave enough to talk sh*t to his face, you should be ready to accept the fade. Not file charges a few days later because you’re probably looking for a check.

Also, Smith’s lawyer says the allegations are false. Let us know what you think in the comments.
