If LeBron James leaves the Cleveland Cavaliers in free agency, this video will likely be played many times to show what led to the move. JR Smith’s horrible blunder at the end of regulation of Game 1 felt like the kind of play that ends all momentum in a series.
LeBron’s reaction shows just that in the new footage of the Cavaliers on the bench following the mistake. At one point, James asks Ty Lue if they indeed did have a time out. LeBron melts down when realizing they could have easily had another play.
Between JR and overtime in Game 1 there was 90 seconds of straight silence from the Cavs bench…

The surreal footage shows just how broken LeBron was in the moment. Good news for 76ers/Rockets/Lakers/Spurs fans.
