Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve no doubt seen the endless memes poking fun at JR Smith’s brain fart at the end of regulation in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
After teammate George Hill hit a free throw to tie the game, he missed the second one and JR grabbed the rebound. Instead of going back up, JR dribbled out to the 3-point line wasting valuable time.
Not everyone was taking jabs however; Kobe Bryant took to Twitter to offer Smith some words of encouragement. Part of me wonders if Kobe would’ve been as forgiving if JR was his teammate. Flip the page to see The Black Mamba’s tweet to JR.
