LeBron. Curry. Durant. Questionable calls. And a player forgetting what the score was.

The first game of the 2018 NBA Finals was an emotional rollercoaster ride for viewers -- and some of those viewers play professional football. Whether it's a missed free throw or a missed tackle, NFL players and NBA players understand what it's like to face championship-level pressure head-on. A lot of them know what it's like to come out on the losing end, too.

Some didn't hold back their critiques, others felt sympathy for J.R. Smith's error.
