Last night was what we’ve all been waiting for since last year. Game 1 of the NBA Finals finally tipped off, and the rematch between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat had begun.
It was a very fun game, with plenty of exciting moments–and plenty of sloppy ones. With countless turnovers it could hardly be called one of the most well played Finals games of recent memory, but it was definitely one of the most fun to watch.
Guys, Ray Allen of all people threw down a poster dunk. Think about that again. Ray Allen–in 2014!–threw down a poster dunk. That’s absurd. It’s pretty impressive he’s even still playing at 38 years old, let alone making highlight reels for something he never even did that much in his prime.
And then of course there was the air conditioning. It malfunctioned during the game last night and left the AT&T Center a sweltering mess. Fans could be seen fanning themselves with whatever they could get their hands on, and the broadcast made updates about the temperature multiple times.
Finally, we saw LeBron James have to be taken out of the game because of brutal cramps that left him unable to move. Oh, and by the way, don’t even start with the nonsense about how he should have played through it or something, because he physically couldn’t. His muscles were contracted so tightly that his legs literally did not work. So don’t go off sounding like an idiot, because if you suggest something about him playing through it or compare it to Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant, you’re an idiot.
Anyways, we have good news regarding the AC.

Sounds like everything should be all set for Game 2. Now we can only hope it’s as much fun as Game 1.
