CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Basketball fans on social media are having lots of fun after ESPN reported JR Smith earned a one-game suspension for throwing soup at assistant coach Damon Jones.

TNT recreated one of the most famous scenes from the television show "Seinfeld."

One of the most watched episodes is the "The Soup Nazi", Jerry and the crew fall in love with the soup at a restaurant in New York.

The only problem is the owner is very strict on the rules of his restaurant, if you don't follow the rules there's "no soup for you."

TNT photoshopped Smith, Tyronn Lue and LeBron James into the soup scene.

According to a Cleveland Cavaliers press release, the sharpshooter served a suspension for "detrimental conduct."

The Cavs lost 108-97 to the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday when Smith was suspended.

The release stated:

"Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been suspended by the team for one game for detrimental conduct. He will serve the suspension tonight as the Cavaliers host the Philadelphia 76ers at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland."

Smith practice Friday and will resume his starting shooting guard spot Saturday when the Cavs host the Denver Nuggets.

Inquiring minds want to know: what kind of soup was it?
