It's not unprecedented it has happened to him at least 4 times that I know. The way Pop is I would not be surprised if it was no accident

I know he has had cramps before but never that severe. Last night he was basically having a full body cramp not just let cramps. Either way, I think any reasonable fan can agree that LeBron wasn't a coward or weak last night for not being in at the end, since he literally could get up and didn't the court.

GH,
I thought of Culliver, too.

Captain Munnerlyn was the one who was notorious for getting cramps every game when he played for USC. Didn't he go to specialists who basically told him it was a bad diet?

Riding to work this morning, I hear about the Finals, the summary I take is this: an old man team schooled a younger team in a hot gym (the Heat could not take the heat?). I did not watch the game, so is this basically what happened?

I'll tell you this.

The NBA is not trying to appeal to the white collar worker. What time did that start 9:30?

Can't say I hate it.

The air went out before the game and it got up to 90 degrees during the game. Lebron cramped up late and the spurs went 14 for 16 in the fourth quarter

Yea I called it yesterday. Spurs in 6 or 7. Spurs depth and 3 point shooting are just way too much for the Heat to handle.

The way they shot in the 4th was just amazing. I think it was 86%!!! I don't think they missed a 3. I could be wrong but I don't think it would of mattered if LeBron was in the game.

That all changed, and the Grantland thing hasn't helped. Now, the content just isn't there. And, if it is, it feels like it's more pop culture than sports...and I understand that that's his "thing" and what his site is all about. Still, he was so much better when he was, you know, The Sports Guy on Page 2.

I don't think he's good on TV, either. It just feels awkward. The things he says on the air would probably read much better than they sound. The chemistry just doesn't seem to be there, except maybe with Jalen Rose, who he podcasts with. Beyond that, he just seems like the "Who invited this guy?" guy at the table, who makes entirely too many Celtics references. We get it. You're from Boston. Enough.

He's said recently that's he's there now to be rock the boat. Nothing more nothing less.

He is one of the top five most knowledgeable people on NBA history. He's watched just about every game that ever mattered.

The problem is he's more main stream now so he doesn't have that edge. Plus as the editor of grantland he doesn't write as much anymore either. He used to put out at least a column or two every week. Now you're lucky to get one a month.

Just the nature of the game

His Podcasts with Jalen are amazing.

And the Book of Basketball was great.

He needs to write more but has gotten too big. Totally understandable though, that's what you work for. Yea you can say he "sold out" but who wouldn't?

Who would have seen 20 years ago a Dorky White Blogger from Holy Cross working as one of the lead Personalities for the NBA on ESPN?
That's one of the main reasons I'm such a fan boy.

Jemele Hill is biggest idiot. She somehow took the cramps and Lebron haters and made it a gender issue. She tried saying that people associate cramps as only a women's problem and therefore, that is why they think Lebron is weak. Seriously? How dumb can you be...smh

Well, yeah. It's a shame she's paired up with someone as likable as Michael Smith on whatever the hell their show/podcast is called. He's a must-watch, she's unwatchable.

That is so dumb. Any man that has played sports seriously has had an experience with cramping up and anyone who has knows how bad it is to deal with.

I had both calves cramp simultaneously while I was in a swimming pool. It was all over at that point. Had to have a lifeguard pull me out.

First game in TX last year, 113-77 Spurs, great game for the Spurs but the Heat win Sunday and the Spurs start to get older...That being said it was a treat to watch the ball movement and shot making in the 4th quarter from a group of seasoned future hall of famers.
If you think James would not have made a difference in the 4th you need to put the crack pipe down, the Heat may not win but the Spurs have to work twice as hard on both ends of the floor when James is in the game.
I wonder if we see Coach Spoelstra playing more Haslem(did not play), Jones(did not play) and Anderson giving up a little on offense for defense as well as an Oden sighting off the bench to see if anyone can help contain Diaw from dropping dimes to Duncan and Splitter at will. I think we will see James play defense in the post so the Heat can go small.
