J.R. Smith is one NBA player who walks to the beat of his own drum and that was never more evident than following the Cleveland Cavaliers’ heartbreaking loss in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors scored the final 11 points to erase a six-point deficit and stretch their lead to 3-0 in the series and seemingly crush all hope for the Cavs. All hope except for Smith’s hope.

Smith quickly deleted the tweet. But here is a screengrab, via Twitter user @JTied23:
