The NBA Finals kicked off yesterday with the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Golden State Warriors, who were heavily favored to essentially crush ass. But Lebron James is a goddamn god and couldn’t miss a shot, putting up 51 points on the night, which miiight’ve been enough to steal a win, but his teammate J.R. Smith did this at the end of regulation.
With the game tied.
