LeBron James starts his eighth consecutive NBA Finals on Thursday against Golden State, and the question this time isn't whether he can win another ring. The question is how he even got here, lugging this Cavaliers roster like locomotive up a mountain.This isn't a mouth-shutting run, as his first titles with the Heat were. This is a jaw-dropping one. But the answer to how he's done it is so simple-Simon basic that anyone who follows sports will need a moment to digest: He's old and improved.

  J.R. Smith isn't alone in the House of Blunders J.R. Smith’s brain cramp might become a funny side note if the Cavaliers rally to upset the heavily favored Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Here’s a look at eight of the most memorable not-so-great gaffes: J.R.

When the group following the men attempted to come inside, Mannery confronted them, thinking they might damage the store or hurt the customers inside.

Mannery tried to close and lock the shop's doors, but somebody punched him and a fight broke out. He was pushed outside in the commotion and several other men joined the mob.

They pushed him into the shop's door hard enough to break the hinge.

Hit at least seven times

Irie Cao, the owner of the Doki Doki dessert shop, said customers and staff inside felt scared and helpless. The people who had sought shelter there called the police.

"It was really dark, but we could see he was being overpowered," Cao said. "He was getting hurt."

Cao said people inside tried to help Mannery, but a stack of chairs between the doors fell over, blocking the entrance.
