LeBron James reaction to J.R. Smith's flub becomes epic meme

  • Stephen Curry and James Harden

While the game was ultimately decided in overtime, the turning point of the game happened in the final seconds of regulation. "I contested a shot that shouldn't have been taken".

With George Hill missing a free throw that would have given the Cavs the lead, Smith got the rebound with the game tied at 107-107 with just 4.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter. "We'll be much better and ready to play on Sunday". James was calling for the ball that entire time and could only hold his arms out in shock before walking back to the huddle for overtime.

"Honestly, I don't care if he plays or not", Golden State's Thompson said Friday before the fine was announced. "It's just I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound". I'm pretty sure everybody didn't think I was going to shoot it over KD right there. Trying to get enough space to get it out and maybe get a shot off, but then.

James got the Cavaliers open looks but they struggled to make them. "Luckily, I was able to finish the game".

"I know it was a tie game", he said in a postgame news conference.

James called it a "huge play" and said "I knew I was outside the charge line". "'You have so many people looking up to you, you have so many kids to inspire, and you, yourself, you have always talked about be as great as you can be every day, ' so I kind of hit that switch before the trade deadline". The game went into overtime and the Cavaliers lost despite James' extremely impressive 51 points.

Hill, a 10-year veteran playing in the Finals for the first time, called it the most disappointing loss of his career.

With 2.6 seconds left in overtime, Thompson was called for a flagrant-2 foul after he got a bit too aggressive while trying to defend a Shaun Livingston jump shot. Several memes were then created with the image of James' distressed reaction to describe a number of other exasperating situations that Netizens face in daily life. We understand that. It was a tough game for us.

"I don't care if he plays or not", Thompson added. I mean, I saw KD standing right next to me.

James answered with an impressive drive, changing hands in midair before scoring to give the Cavs the lead.

But that hasn't stopped Smith from suggesting that Curry is nowhere near close to James.

The opener of the fourth straight finals between these teams followed a familiar script with the deeper Warriors overcoming a sensational individually effort by James the way they did in winning the past two titles.

He made 19 of 32 shots, added eight rebounds and eight assists and played almost 48 minutes for a third straight game.

Mark Schwarz of ESPN pressed the superstar on what teammate J.R. Smith was thinking when he dribbled out almost all of the waning seconds of a tied-up game. We just came up short.

Durant was notably awarded last year's Finals MVP, with many in the basketball world arguing he was slowly surpassing James as the best player in the league.
