The Internet is having a field day at LeBron James' expense, but let's just address a few things for the psychos (especially on Twitter) who have been knocking the Heat superstar since leaving the end of last night's game with cramps.

1. NO, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant would not have stayed in the game if they literally couldn't move like LeBron.

2. Stop trying to analyze how LeBron hydrated himself and what his electrolyte intake was. You're at home. You have no idea what the guy and team doctors did or didn't do.

3. Stop using the argument that LeBron is soft because no other player on the court cramped up. Every person's body is different. Every person is built differently. Don't be that ignorant.

4. If your argument is that LeBron James isn't tough, please let me know exactly what you thought his mindset was last night. Did he just decide to leave the game in the closing minutes because, what, he couldn't take the pressure? He didn't want to play through pain, even though he couldn't walk?

 

 

The funniest thing about what took place on Twitter last night was seeing "fans" rip LeBron for not playing through the cramps while athletes were explaining that it's impossible to play through cramps. I think I'll trust the athletes.
