It’s August and J.R Smith is still a free agent, but back in June after the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a 3-1 series deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors, it was celebration time in Cleveland.

Everybody partied, but nobody partied harder than Cavs guard J.R. Smith who popped a bunch of bottles of champagne in Las Vegas, not to drink, but to just spray them over people. How much exactly?

According to Sports Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins:

On June 20, around 3 a.m. at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas, the Cavaliers lost track of (James). While they toasted their title poolside at XS Nightclub—where Smith sprayed $23,000 worth of champagne, according to credible estimates—James slipped out the door. He wound up at Allegro, an Italian restaurant on the casino floor, sitting silently over a Margherita pizza.

There are people who work everyday who don’t make that in a year and Smith sprayed it just for the hell of it. $23,000 could have gotten him 767 Cavs Championships shirts.
