The Cleveland Cavalier shooting guard made an unexpected appearance at The Park – an NYC nightclub – when two Penn State students noticed him and asked for a pic with the NBA star who signed a 4-year contract estimated at $57 with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016.

“So first I asked him for a picture and I made sure that no one was around so people wouldn’t notice him,” Massimo Cusumano told The college student even addressed Smith as sir – but his bodyguards told Cusumano “not right now.”

“We totally understood because what athlete wants to be bothered all the time,” Cusumano told Standing 100 feet away, Cusumano’s friend – who requested to remain anonymous pending the NYPD investigation – snagged a Snapchat of the enraged player, conceivably marking the last Snapchat Galvis will be taking in a while.

“JR comes out of his way to come up to [my friend] and he launches the phone out of nowhere into a construction site down the street!” the shocked student told

Massimo tweeted at 2:42 a.m. that Smith was at the same club he was at with his friend.

and just 7 minutes later, his friend’s phone was flung into the construction site!

A second eyewitness in the club stated he saw Smith fondling with other girls inside, despite his marriage to Jewel Harris! “He was finessing the girl I was eyeing up!” a source revealed. “I can’t compete with that paycheck.”

NYPD confirmed with Wednesday that they responded to the club and a 20-year-old college student informed them that the maddened NBA player took his cell phone and threw it into a construction site down the street after trying to snag a quick Snapchat … from about 100 feet away!

“A report for criminal mischief was filed in regards,” Det. Sophia Mason, an NYPD spokeswoman told “There are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.”

From 0.1 blocks per game as an NBA star to one city block, it appears JR Smith will throw anything from a ball to an iPhone.

The Cleveland Cavaliers did not reply to repeated requests for comment.
