Kobe Bryant weighs in on JR Smith’s blunder
We already know what LeBron James’ reaction was to JR Smith’s epic blunder on Thursday, and now another all-time great is giving his two cents as well.
Retired Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant posted a tweet Friday reacting to Smith forgetting the score and dribbling out the clock to ultimately cost his Cleveland Cavaliers Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Bryant used a fitting emoji to describe the play before advising Smith and the Cavs to forget it and move on.
play. Flush it. Move on #nbafinals2018

What is interesting here is that Bryant, who played in seven Finals and won five championships during his illustrious NBA career, used almost identical language to describe the 27-55 season that the Lakers had in 2013-14.

Simply forgetting about such a devastating gaffe that led to such a devastating loss may be easier said than done for the Cavs, especially against a seemingly invincible team like the Golden State Warriors. But at least Bryant was much more forgiving of Smith than the Internet was.
