When play resumed after the Spurs’ timeout ended, No. 6 was nowhere to be found. It wasn’t until 4:19 left in the quarter that James returned to the Heat bench and checked back into the game.
ESPN’s Doris Burke later reported — and head coach Erik Spoelstra confirmed after the game — that James did indeed depart the game to take a bathroom break. Of course, that’s left everyone wondering … did he do a little too much hydrating before the game and he needed to drain the lizard? Or did that monster burrito he ate pregame kick in at a bad time?
Good thing we have a million video cameras around during the Finals so we don’t have to miss any embarrassing moments.
