LeBron James had one of the greatest performances in NBA Finals history. James ended the night 4th all-time with 51 points.
That stat line will be forgotten, thanks to J.R. Smith’s last-second decision with a chance to win. Smith decided to run upcourt after a missed free throw. James was clearly upset on the court and asking Smith why he didn’t you just take the ball up.
During the postgame conference, reporters continued to ask Lebron about J.R.’s “state of mind” during the play. By that point Lebron had enough of the questions.

Lebron James walked off, telling reporters “Be better tomorrow.” Translation stop asking me these dumb ass questions.
