The NBA has reportedly notified Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith that he will be fined for every game that his “Supreme” logo tattoo is not covered on his leg, according to Shams Charania.
“NBA rules prohibit players from displaying any commercial logos or corporate insignia on their body or in their hair,” league spokesman Mike Bass said.

“So I was informed today that I would be fined every game if I don’t cover up my ‘SUPREME TATTOO’ on my legs during games!!” Smith wrote, “These people in the league office are something else!”
J.R. Smith finished the post with a middle finger emoji, before adding:
“I swear I’m the only person they do (expletive) like this to,” he wrote. “So you mean to tell me I have to cover up my tattoo for what? You don’t make people cover up Jordan logos, NIKE checks or anything else but because it’s me it’s a problem all of a sudden!!! (expletive) whack.”
