Cleveland Cavaliers’ J.R. Smith is either unfazed or sending a direct message to the NBA following buzz about the league reminding organizations to stand during the National Anthem.

This past Sunday, Smith went to Twitter to acknowledge the viral chatter.

A few days ago, a report emerged about the NBA’s headline-generating memo.

According to the memo, obtained by ESPN, “the league office will determine how to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach, or trainer does not stand for the anthem.” The memo goes on to say the rule is compulsory … teams “do not have the discretion to waive” the rule. (TMZ)
