5 Movies That Describe The State Of The Cavs’ Bench

    Lebron James reaction to JR Smiths Game 1 gaffe and the social media meme explosion it has become is making life rough for J.R. Smith. You knew LeBron and Co. were pissed at him, but when you check out the uncut raw footage of the intermission between the end of regulation and overtime, the silence between the players and body language of LeBron James could cut through wind and really gives us insight into how dejected and in shock Cleveland was. 

    James sat a couple of chairs away from Smith, in his own world, not speaking to anyone. But Bron’s naked expression revealed his mind state in that lost opportunity. When James found out from coach Tyronn Lue that Cleveland had timeouts left, he totally lost and it and buried his head in his hands. Im just not sure if hes mad at Lue for not calling a timeout, JR Smith for not calling a timeout or himself for not knowing how many timeouts they had?

    If you notice, most of the movies have to do with the world coming to an end because thats exactly what happened to the Cavs, JR Smiths career with Cleveland and LeBron James four -year return tenure in Ohio, barring a miracle comeback in these last five NBA finals games.  

    I also added How High because Smiths entire career has been filled high moments. Whether he was under the influence or not, theres no doubt that Smith is on some sort of natural enhancement that occasionally loses him in the moment as he slides into  a world unique to himself.
