The Golden State Warriors are now only 3 wins away from the Championship, the Cavaliers predictably lost after putting up a great fight, and LeBron James faces more daunting tasks as his potential free-agency this summer looms in the future.
But despite all that, it's J.R. Smith who finds himself trending tonight... and for all the wrong reasons. Rather than attempt a shot or pass it off, J.R. held the ball with seconds on the clock, mistakenly thinking the Cavs were ahead... when, in fact, the game was tied. In short, Smith might've robbed the Cavs of a final shot that might've gone in to seal the game for them. Instead, he forced OT and played a huge hand in Cleveland's defeat.
No doubt, it's a move Smith will regret for some time and one that his teammates will probably never forget. Still, it doesn't mean the rest of us haven't had a bit of fun with it. In fact, there was no shortage of memes and jokes regarding J.R.'s ridiculous mistake... here are just a few of the best ones.
Do us all a favor and never change, J.R....
