J.R. Smith’s game 1 blunder is still being talked about, and my guess is, unless the Cavs win the series, they will talk about this forever. New footage of the team’s bench before overtime began finally reveals what happened immediately following.

Unlike all of the previously released footage, this one actually makes you feel sorry for Smith. It also made a lot of people on social media question the “leadership” of LeBron, who ignored Smith and almost broke down into tears after asking Lue if they were out of timeouts. LeBron needs to be a leader, not a cry baby.
