JR Smith, a former NBA champion had an illustrious 16-year career in the league. Not only supporting literate players like LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, Smith was also one of the highlights in the NBA during his prime years. Most striking, however, is that he is known for having lost some time in the 2018 Finals series between the Cavaliers and the Warriors, which may have changed the dynamics.

Feeling that he had been unfairly mistreated for the same, JR Smith admitted that he was guilty of not passing or taking a shot himself during the Finals series against the Warriors. With the same win in Game 1, the Cavaliers can change the scenario like the original, they lost 4-0.

What opinion did JR Smith make?

JR Smith has now opened up about that unforgettable situation. The 36-year-old revealed that at the time, the Cavaliers abandoned him a lot. Smith explains why he feels a bit betrayed by his team during a recent appearance on I am a PASSION programme.

“It’s an island because none of the coaches say s***,” Smith said. “It was like no one wanted to be responsible for it, so you left me with it. You know what I’m saying? And it was like, okay, great. If that’s how you want to play it, we can’t call ourselves a real team.”

With that said, it’s really JR Smith’s fault and no one else can be blamed but him. However, his teammates left him alone on the island of blame, so inevitably, the veteran guard could feel more aggravated.

With the Cavaliers being the only team that could stop the reigns of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green from starring as the Warriors, JR Smith has certainly been a piece of history. But who knows, if he actually passed that on to anyone on the team, there might be a completely different storyline to keep in mind? But all of that is certainly nothing more than mere speculation.
