Cavaliers fans, avert your eyes.
I know you’re dealing with a lot right now. What with J.R. Smith J.R. Smith-ing away any chance at a close NBA Finals at the close of regulation in Game 1.
So you definitely don’t want to see this video right now.
At least, not if you hope to hold onto LeBron James this summer.
The footage is almost three uncut minutes of LeBron stewing in silence on the bench following Smith’s Game 1 debacle.
The only time he speaks to anyone, he looks … well, just watch.
This is heartbreaking! Long uncut footage of LeBron, JR Smith & George Hill after Smith’s mistake in Game 1. pic.twitter.com/MplQoAkk0a

LeBron appears to ask head coach Ty Lue if the Cavs had a timeout to blow before the horn sounded on regulation. They did.
Days before his teammates let him down, LeBron hinted that his unideal relationship with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert could factor into his free agency decisions (check the last 10 seconds of this clip).
LeBron James sits down and opens up on the craziest season of his career, the months when he worried the Cavs wouldn’t even make the playoffs (much less the Finals), why he didn’t want Cleveland to trade Kyrie – plus his relationship with Owner Dan Gilbert. pic.twitter.com/baOWUcPoe6

Look, I’m not saying LeBron’s not gonna be with the Cavs beyond this postseason. Just maybe hold off on buying any Cavs jerseys with his name on the back for a few weeks.
