WATCH: Former NBA Star JR Smith Literally Stung in 1st College Golf Tourney


Former NBA star JR Smith, who is a member of the golf team at North Carolina A&T University, didn't count on having to deal with this in his very first tournament with the school.

Playing in the second round of his first-ever tournament on Tuesday, Smith encountered a stinging insect's nest - actually stepping on it - and was stung multiple times! Various reports identified the insects as wasps, bees and hornets.

At least we know it wasn't the Charlotte Hornets (Ba-dum-tiss).

Smith was playing his final round when he apparently went searching for his ball in the woods on the 12th hole. It was there that he came in contact with the nest.

The 36-year-old freshman shot a 12-over-par 83 in Round 1 on Monday and a 7-over 78 in Round 2. Smith finished his round Tuesday in 81st place. He is pursuing a degree in liberal studies while playing for the golf team.
