J.R. Smith's NBA Finals blunder deserves a deep rewind | Warriors vs Cavaliers 2018

  • Published on: 12 May 2019
  • The Cavaliers and Warriors battled in the NBA Finals four consecutive years. LeBron James versus Steph Curry and the Warriors just became an expected matchup to end the season. But the last Finals series between these two teams wasn't quite as close as we had come to expect and it left a sour taste in the mouths of Cavs fans. It all started with a Game one slugfest, ending in one of the many mistakes made by wild card two guard, J.R. Smith.

    Speaking of low IQ like JR. There is this video where 60% of the items brought up have little to no bearing on the subject. What a waste of time hoping that the long introduction was somehow paid off in the concluding thesis.

    Super cool lol everyone thought he was a snake but with him he has no loyalty so in his mind he thinks if he can't beat him join him

    Hill missed the free throw that could’ve put them up by 1, but he never gets blamed. Also, J.R. Smith grabbing the offensive rebound prevented the Warriors from having a chance to win in regulation. What he did afterwards was dumb, but the play itself (including the rebound) was one that helped the Cavs in that situation.

    If you guys wanna show some Aussie love and give NRL some worthy attention.. i reckon you should do a Deep Rewind on the 2015 NRL Grand Fina between the Cowboys and Broncos.

    Is there a rule preventing the coaxh from calling a time out? If no then he is no worse than the greatest basketball player who ever lived.

    What causes the effect in the still pics of in-game action where only the players in focus have light on them and the rest of the stadium looks pitch black?

    Cavs should have won the first year the warriors won. They got lucky we lost love and Kyrie and still took it to a game 6 with our 2nd and 3rd best players being maybe delevadova and timofay mosgov
