Warriors fans sarcastically chant “MVP” for JR Smith (VIDEO)


The Golden State Warriors were winners in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals on Thursday, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers thanks in part to some late game hiccups by JR Smith.

Smith infamously forgot the score, then told reporters he just wanted to get a timeout. That’s obviously not true, and during Sunday’s Game 2 matchup fans in Oakland were ready to troll the Cavaliers guard about it.

When Smith was introduced during pregame lineups, he got one of the loudest cheers of all players from Warriors fans. Then, when Smith was taking a free throw in the first quarter, fans at Oracle Arena sarcastically chanted “MVP” at the Cleveland scorer.

Smith did help the Warriors out of a tight spot. Cleveland played just about as well as they could have hoped, LeBron James scored 51 points, and yet because of some small errors like Smith’s, Golden State won again.
