After handling the aftermath of what LeBron James and the Miami Heat losing to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA finals, it’s time to take a look at all the best memes and jokes from the moment the series began until it ended – from the focus on the cramps and AC, to Manu Ginobili ruining another game and the final blow of the hammer, as Kawhi Leonard took over to run away with the MVP.
LeBron James started as the joke of the finals for his cramps and ended it as being laughed at as well, for not managing to complete the 3-peat, and also for playing with a team that left him out to dry, not showing up, each and every one of this teammates, in the final three games in which the Spurs beat the Heat by an average of 19 points.
Some say the Spurs are simply that much better than the Heat. Others suggest that the mental fatigue from reaching four consecutive finals series took its toll and overwhelmed the Miami Heat. Whatever it was, it looked bad that a defending champion seemed so helpless on both ends of the floor – not 1, not 2, but 3 times.
The Spurs, surprising to say, look stronger than ever going into the offseason. For the Miami Heat, it’s mostly about the questions, with one big one hanging over everyone’s heads like the grim reaper, waiting to finish off another mini-dynasty. Some of them just want to put a hellish couple of weeks behind them, including the buzz on social media that tore them to pieces, for those who actually take these things to heart.
