During Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs Thursday night (June 5), fans and players alike couldn’t take the heat. The air conditioning at the AT&T Center in San Antonio went out, leaving the whole venue sweating bullets in 90-degree heat for nearly three hours. Unfortunately, Miami’s LeBron James couldn’t take the heat (pun intended) and was cramped up on his entire left side, ultimately leaving him sidelined with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. Social media made light of the situation by poking fun at the Miami Heat power forward, triggering a new Internet trend called “#LeBroning”, a photo taken of a “limping” person being lifted by two other people. Take a look at the King James mockery below.
