Gatorade Disses LeBron James Leg Cramp
Gatorade is thirsty ... for a fight -- because last night, the sports drink was talkin' serious SMACK to LeBron James after the NBA star left the game with leg cramps. 

Moments after King James was carried off the court like he was dying in San Antonio ... Gatorade went to Twitter and unleashed its inner troll on LeBron, who happens to be a Powerade guy.

"The person cramping wasn't our client. Our athletes can take the heat," Gatorade posted. 

When someone asked, "WHERE WERE YOU WHEN LEBRON NEEDED YOU????" ... Gatorade replied, "we were waiting on the sidelines, but he prefers to drink something else."

Even New York Giants stud Prince Amukamara chimed in saying, "Hopefully Lebron switches to @Gatorade #electrolytes #refuel."

Again, Gatorade replied, "@PrinceAmukamara You've always had good taste, Prince."

Your move, Bron. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

I hate how some people compare this guy to Jordan and the Heat to the Bulls of the 90s. The Bulls of the 90s didn't lose games in the finals by 15 points!

I can't stand Lebron for how he did Ohio and this man thinks he is God! Sorry people he's not hope somebody has the balls to bring this idiot off the pedestal that he sits upon. It's one thing to wish you were Micheal Jordan but that is something Lebron you will never be!!!!

Kobe's injury is totally different from what Lebron was going threw. I am a nurse by trade and people WALK into the ER that I work at all the time with the same injury that Kobe had. Yes it's pain but they do walk in. Where ever the cramp is totally leaves that muscle useable until it is gone and it is a totally different type of pain. Yes Kobe walked off but he had tons of major and accessory muscles to help aid in that WALKING OFF. I am no Lebron fan and I don't buy he shoes ( sorry can't spend that kind of money on something that i walk on) but there is a huge difference between how he plays to how Duncan plays NOW. The heat depends on James to play almost the whole game score at least 25 points and lead them to victory. At some points of the season Duncan takes gamesssssss off at a time and they don't depend on Duncan to play the entire game and lean on him for points.

It is true, I was at a conference in NM and the President came in, and he worked out in the gym and did not put my coworker out.

@tank you sure do sound like a lebron fan and yes leg cramps do hurt but why didn't he return I haven't heard of one person having leg cramps for long and he knew that the spurs were gonna win they couldn't shake the spurs cuz now they have to play an actual good team for once yes the pacers were a good team but they weren't consistent and let's face it the other teams they played to get here we're easy teams to beat

Bull. LeBron is a pro athlete. He knows all about how to prevent cramping up during a game or workout no matter what the temperature. Fixed.

This just make me giggle. It was kinda necessary for them to this for damage control tho. SO many people were saying, "Lebron has a deal with Gatorade and he isn't hydrated". They nipped that in the bud quickly!
