What’s the best ‘throwing soup?’ We investigate for JR Smith and you! (video)

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- When we learned Friday that JR Smith was suspended for one game for throwing soup at assistant coach Damon Jones, we started asking ourselves: “Just what kind of soup is the best for throwing? What would have the best spread? The best splatter? Does brand make a difference? And what kind of pitch does one use?”

Three folks from cleveland.com dove straight into our lab, and enlisted the help of politics reporter Seth Richardson and photographer/videographer David Petkiewicz to play the roles of Smith and Jones, with a variety of soups to be thrown at close range. The feature was shot and produced by videographer Zachariah Durr.

Our study paid off, and we feel confident in presenting our findings to the world. Watch our video to get the ground-breaking study results.
