The Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals on Thursday, but one Cavaliers player is already taking shots.

On Wednesday, notorious trash-talker — and Cavs shooting guard — J.R. Smith posted a picture to Instagram criticizing Caitlyn Jenner’s very public gender transition, and let’s just say he probably shouldn’t have said that. (RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner To Receive Arthur Ashe Award For Courage At 2015 ESPY’s)



In case you can’t read the fine print, here’s Smith’s message in full:

Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million Africans with solar power. I’m really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project Bruce Jenner is. #Society

J.R. deleted the picture shortly after posting.

I’m not going to come out and blast Smith for posting the picture. I respect his right to speak his mind, just like I respect Jenner’s decision to do whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-say-he’s-currently-doing. Still, you’d think J.R. wouldn’t want to draw any extra attention to himself on the eve of the biggest series of his career.

Food for thought.
