LeBron James comments on Danny Green’s wide open shot miss, calling it a great shot and seems disappointed by the miss.

With 8 seconds on the clock in the 4th quarter, Danny Green took a wide open 3 from the top of the arc, and with no one even close to contesting the shot, Green missed by hitting front iron.
This shot could’ve been a potential game winner which would result in a Lakers championship but now the Heat force a Game 6.
