This was 2018 not the 90s. We had HD TV. Why the fuzzy picture effects?

There's an NBA2K simulation in YouTube, where it play the Cavs Warriors 2018 Finals, four months before the actual finals. In that simulation, NBA2K didn't play JR Smith. The simulation shows the Cavs split the first two in Oracle and won Finals in six. Four months before finals, NBA2K is likely saying to the Cavs to not play JR in June.

He should've had another free throw, if you watch Durant he was in the lane before the ball left the shooter's hand

In the MJ v Lebron debate, could Jordan have survived JR Smith? Or would he have injured him on purpose in practice?

As a native New Yorker and Knicks fan I was very disappointed in JR Smith’s approach to the game. It never felt like he took the game seriously. He could have been ill if he would have.

George Hill should really thank JR for saving him from being the scapegoat of this game. Nobody talks about him missing a game winning free throw because it was followed by one of the most tragic mistakes in NBA history.

Steve Kerr is legit the most overrated coach of all time in any sport. Basically a glorified chaperone of an all-star team.

Once you started using filthy profanity, I turned you off. However God is listening to your filthy language, and you will eventually give an account for it and will surely regret it, when you stand before Jesus your creator and judge. You will regret the very day that you were born. So go right ahead and continue to store up your punishment.

Please do Sidney Crosby's OT sudden death goal against USA for the gold medal in the 2010 winter Olympics. Such a big moment in hockey and sports definitely deserves a rewind.

When you said Lebron got them to game 7 in 2016 by sheer will you forgot to mention how the refs were also involved heavily in getting them there...
Shaquilly o'nilly
Shaquilly o'nilly - 10 days ago
The refs never assisted the Cavs, your warriors just fell apart. Steph curry was complete garbage and you were relying on draymond to score atleast 20ppg to get to a game 7. the Cavs have always been the better team. If Kyrie and love stayed and never got injured, Durant never becomes a snake, the Cavs win 4 years in a row.

J.R. Smith is one of the most frustrating, inconsistent, exciting and disappointing players I've ever seen. We've seen him stay average to below average and then bust out some amazing, highlight reel play outta nowhere so many times over the years. We've seen him come up insanely clutch when it mattered least only to flop hard when it really counted. It's depressing cause it doesn't seem like it has to be this way. He could be a lot better, but he's just satisfied getting paid to show up.

Draymond Green in 2016 being suspended was the key to victory, not just a single scene in game 7.

Legendary Games if draymond would have been normal draymond and only played defense, the warriors would have gotten swept.
Legendary Games
Legendary Games - 10 days ago
@Shaquilly o'nilly Well draymond is about defense, thats my point. I do not talk about bin making shots or being a scorer. He played the first 4 and they were up 3-1. Game 7 was very close so would be 5 and 6 with dray. I think it ist very unlikely that the cavs come out 3 of 3 with dray in all games.
Shaquilly o'nilly
Shaquilly o'nilly - 10 days ago
I’m sure not having draymond green, who puts up 9.0 ppg and shoots very poorly from 3 is why you couldn’t clinch the finals. You had to get some actual players, that why you got Durant.
Shaquilly o'nilly
Shaquilly o'nilly - 10 days ago
Draymond green is complete garbage and he was scoring 20+ppg in the finals and hitting 3’s. I’m pretty sure draymond averaged more points and shot better than curry in the finals which proves how bad the warriors really were. Kyrie Irving embarrasses curry and the warriors all series.If Cavs had a fair shot in 2015, and Durant never joins the warriors for 2017,2018, the Cavs win 4 chips in a row and the warriors have nothing.

I like when people act like J.R Smith stole a championship from LeBron like they didn’t get swept.

He kinda did tho. J.R Smith ruined LeBron's momentum that series. If they won Game 1, LeBron would absolutely keep his momentum. Though, I'd still think they'll lose, like c'mon that team was so stacked.

Many individuals in this world have less than ideal judgement. I prefer them to those who create character assassination videos. The maker of this video proves what a big man he is by presenting almost all negative information about another person. Ugh!

? The Cavs were going to win this year. Look at the numbers he was putting up and the game winning shots he was hitting in 2018 playoffs, the bumass warriors didn’t stand a chance vs Lebron in 2018.

If SB ever does a video on a team losing the 2020 NBA finals or a playoff series in such fashion, they'd probably start the video with "First, you have to understand the Coronavirus lockdown..."

To be honest you can’t put all the blame on JR Smith, If George hill made that free throw none of this would have happened and it was outstanding from JR Smith to even get the offensive rebound, he doesn’t deserve all the blame.
