Los Angeles Lakers point guard Quinn Cook won his second NBA championship on Sunday night.
After his team's initial celebrations, the players got on the bus to return to the hotel where they have lived for the past 95 days.
Cook literally missed the bus and was live commenting on JR Smith's Instagram to ask his teammates to turn around and pick him up from the arena.

Quinn Cook may have two NBA championship rings now, but he still can't find a ride home.
After winning the 2020 NBA Final with a 106-93 Game 6 win over the Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Lakers point guard took center stage with his teammates at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida Celebrations.
But before he realized what had happened, the 27-year-old literally missed the bus home.

JR Smith, who signed with the Lakers prior to the NBA's return, had gone live on Instagram from the team bus when Cook started commenting that they'd left him behind.
"I have to go back after winning an f ------ ring wtf," Cook wrote. "Come back."
"Do a uturn," he added.
"Ohhhhhh, we left QC, brother," said Smith as he read the comments. "QC said tell them to come back and get him. We left him. We left QC brother."
Whether several buses left the arena or Cook really missed his only trip remains unclear. But if he had to find a way back to his temporary home in the NBA bubble at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, at least he had one extra ring to use as a negotiating chip.
