Ever since the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Finals, J.R. Smith has developed an apparent allergy to shirts.
He was shirtless for the post-game party at a Vegas night club.

Now, a photo has surfaced showing Smith was even shirtless during a recent round of golf:

Lakewood Country Club is a golf course in Westlake, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. According to GolfOhio.com, their dress code requires a collared shirt and bermuda shorts. However, when you play a pivotal role on the team that delivered Cleveland its first major sports title in 52 years, dress codes become a bit more lax.
J.R.'s shirtless spree was truly the stuff of legend, but all good things must come to an end. A recent snapchat from Richard Jefferson showed Swish had finally gotten over his fear of shirts:
