J.R. Smith has been an entertaining sharpshooter throughout his NBA career, but his lasting legacy likely will include a moment he’d like to forget.
The Golden State Warriors’ NBA Finals sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers was aided by Smith, whose now-infamous mental error in Game 1 cost the Cavs a golden opportunity to grab the momentum in the series right out of the gate.
But now that he’s over a month removed from his brain cramp, Smith appears to be seeing the humor in what took place. In an Instagram photo of his daughter Dakota on Monday, “Swish” took a little jab at himself.
“How my Kota looked at me when i didn’t shoot the ball after game 1! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️👀👀👀👀👀 She so funny!!! @_mykotabear,” Smith wrote as the caption.
There’s a strong chance Smith never will reach the Finals with the Cavaliers again, as LeBron James has gone from his hometown to Tinseltown.
