Last night in the NBA Playoffs: Spurs take Game 1 and no, I will not make a cramping pun

I don’t believe I’ve shared any advice from Nick Young yet on these posts, so here’s a great message from the self proclaimed best shooting guard in the league.


San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat

This game was awesome. It wasn’t the most well played basketball game of all time, but it was a lot of fun to watch. And there were plenty of cool things that happened so here we go.

Look at Dwyane Wade taking a page out of Rajon Rondo’s book with the exaggerated ball fake. This is one of my favorite things Rondo does and I’m low key heated that Wade stole it.

I still don’t understand how Boris Diaw continues to be great, but there he was last night delivering beautiful passes like this.

Ray Allen out on the fast break and he asf;dlkhasdpofih WHAAATTTTTT?!?!

I can’t stress how amazing this was. Like look at Ray’s face when he’s about to punch it in. I don’t think even he realized he could still dunk like that. I seriously just let out this weird yell/noise thing when he did that last night. It was incredible.

Tiago Splitter didn’t want to be left out of the fun, so he decided to throw down a nice dunk as well.

And then we get to LeBron and his cramps. I feel so bad for him, because cramps can be incredibly painful and there’s just nothing you can do. It’s not like a sore knee or hamstring or something where you can fight through it. Like, your muscles are contracted so tightly they will not work.

But of course there are idiots everywhere talking about how they could have played through it or something. And even worse are the people making misogynistic jokes because yeah, being a woman is so lame. Haha women suck. Amirite, #dudes? Sorry, just a little menzhumor for you there.

Plus real tough guys like Michael Jordan would have played through it because they want to win at… oh wait, what’s that? Oh, Michael Jordan asked to be taken out of a Finals game because of cramps. Whoops.

Anyways, with LeBron out, the Spurs pulled away down the stretch.
