J.R. Smith did. Back in 2018, social media went (soup to) nuts over the then-Cleveland Cavaliers guard being suspended one game for throwing a bowl of some brothy goodness at assistant coach Damon Jones.

People were guessing what kind of soup it was - turned out it was chicken tortilla, which we learned after - and wondering what the story was behind the bizarre incident.

This week, we got an answer: Jones appeared on Jalen & Jacoby and spoke out about what went down that day in the Cavs' locker room that sparked the soup toss:

Let's break down what we learned:

1. Smith apologized to Jones. That's important.

2. It was a whole bowl and the soup that got thrown.

3. It was "the first bowl out of pot, so it was hot as hell." That's a vital detail because it wasn't like Smith was in the middle of his meal before the throw. It means he threw it soon after it was ladled. Owwwww.

4. They didn't talk for "probably" three months. But one night, they talked and moved on.

Thus ends one of the weirder locker room incidents in recent memory.
