At the end of the game, JR-Smith quickly took off his shirt and rushed into the court to hug his teammates to celebrate the championship. Stripping celebration is already a classic action of JR. As early as the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade, JR, shirtless, attracted a lot of attention.
Now, 4 years later, JR has finally waited for this moment. For JR, he has basically entered the countdown to retirement. In this year's playoffs, JR did not help the Lakers much. But being able to win the championship trophy with Big Brother LeBron again, JR is really excited. In the locker room, JR also poured champagne directly on LeBron's head.
JR's shirtless appearance is also a driving force for the young Lakers. After the game, Caruso and Kuzma both took off their shirts and went to the press conference with goggles.
Caruso played very well today, successfully limiting the Heat's shooter group on the defensive end. After the game, Caruso said in an interview: "I don't think many people think we will win. Many people will choose other teams in the West, or some teams in the East. They said that our role players are not good. They said LeBron is too old."
The American media also reviewed Caruso’s legendary career: “He was drafted and lost in 2016; he signed with the Thunder and was subsequently abandoned; went to the Development League to play; got a two-way contract with the Lakers; became the fans’ favorite player; finally Become a championship."
