JR Smith 在總決賽Game 1 法定時間末段錯失得勝機會,Warriors 最終在加時之後得勝。JR 的誤區當然是記者賽後的焦點,而今場打出強勢表現的LeBron 則當然成了被追問的目標。

多次被ESPN 記者追問關於JR Smith 的第四節末段處理,LeBron James 在第四度交出答案之後就此離場,並對記者說:”Be better tomorrow.” (「明天做好一點吧。」)

Schwarz: There’s still confusion as to whether J.R. thought the game was tied or whether he thought you guys were ahead. From where you stood on the court and from talking to him after the play, what’s your version?

James: “What do you mean, ‘What’s my version?’”

Schwarz: Well, did he think that the game was tied? Or did he think that you guys had (the game won)?

James: How do I know that?

Schwarz: Or did you discuss it at all with him at the end of the play?

James: No. They asked me if I talked to J.R. about it. I said no already. I knew it was a tie game. We were down 1. George Hill went up. We made the first one. We got the offensive rebound. You know, I thought we were all aware of what was going on. That’s my view.

I don’t know what J.R. was thinking. I don’t know what question you’re trying to ask.

Schwarz: I was just trying to see if you knew exactly what his state of mind was. Did he think that you guys had one or did he think he was trying to make a play?

James: … [shakes head]

Schwarz: Not sure?

James: What do you mean I’m not sure? No, I don’t know his state of mind.

Schwarz: Did you know if he knew the score?

James: [Gets up and walks away]

關於JR,LeBron 在賽後記者會也曾說:「我們要向前看。這球賽已經完了終了。我怎也不會捨棄JR。我永不會捨棄我任何球員、任何隊友。」
