Thursday night's game between the Spurs and the Heat was fantastic. It was well-played, closely contested and we learned that Ray Allen still has a little Shuttlesworth in him. But none of this will ultimately be remembered because of a faulty air conditioning system at the AT&T Center, which likely led to LeBron James having to sit out the end of the game with severe cramps. Reasonable fans would say that the cramps were a shame, given the importance of the contest, but would hardly fault James because his body could not properly function (he was carried off the court by teammates). But alas, we are not living in the age of reasonable people. We are living in the age of Twitter. Below you can read the thoughts of several adults and Skip Bayless:
