ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — AS you probably know by now, last night LeBron James had a heckuva time dealing with cramps during the fourth quarter of Game 1 of the NBA finals. If you’ve ever dealt with cramps, you know they aren’t a long-term issue, but they can absolutely render you completely unable to move, at least momentarily. This is what happened to LeBron last night, as he spent most of the fourth quarter either on the bench or in the locker room getting worked over, unable to play as the Spurs closed out the Heat.
As the situation was unfolding, several people took to Twitter to ask Gatorade why their product wasn’t working. And as the Gatorade Twitter account pointed out, repeatedly, LeBron doesn’t drink Gatorade — he’s a Powerade endorser.
