After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, all anyone could talk about was the fact that LeBron James cramped up and left the Heat for dead while he tried to soothe the pain he was in. Some people didn’t actually believe that LeBron was in any pain, but mostly everyone else just trolled the living daylights out of the Heat star.
The main theme of trolling LeBron either came in the form of #LeBroning on Twitter or somehow working the phrase ‘stay hydrated’ or some various form of the phrase into a tongue-in-cheek sentence. Since the, LeBron led the Heat to a Game 2 win and is in line to get Miami a 2-1 series lead in Game 3.
Someone forgot to tell Paul George that the trolling fad was over because he showed up way late to the party.
Like, a week late.
We can’t be that surprised that George is showing up late to the troll-fest that everyone had at LeBron’s expense, as George never showed up at all late in games against the Heat in the postseason.
George certainly has a lot of time on his hands now that he’s not playing basketball anymore this season, so while he’s letting LeBron know he needs to stay hydrated, Pacers fans are letting George know he needs to keep his team on the court beyond the Eastern Conference Finals.
