LeBron James did the unthinkable in Game 4. No he didn't throw down a monster slam dunk or drop 40 points in a quarter. He committed four fouls in the first half, with six minutes remaining, and had to sit out the rest of the first half because of it.
Turns out this was the first time James has ever committed four fouls in a single half,. That's always been the way James plays. He doesn't let himself get into foul trouble and he's very careful about when he does commit fouls. However, the Celtics had his number pegged Tuesday night and Twitter couldn't believe it. They yelled, screamed, and made a bunch of jokes.
LeBron has never had 4 fouls in the first half in his career. Only had 3 playoff games with 4 fouls over last two years.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) May 24, 2017
Are the Cs better without IT? Are the Cavs better without LeBron? Are we living in the updside down? Where's Eleven?— GUABO (@guabobay) May 24, 2017
However, while Cavs fans were definitely worried that they just lost James to the bench, Kyrie Irving stepped up in a big way to pick up the slack for James. He played incredible and Twitter certainly took notice of his heroics.
Cleveland entered halftime only down 10 points, but that doesn't matter in the world of Twitter. Online there's only two rules. Rule number one is to never tweet. Rule number two is to break rule number one and get off as many jokes as possible. Jokes>facts for all eternity. That is how the internet is governed.
