Gatorade took multiples jabs at LeBron James via Twitter Thursday night after the Heat star was forced to leave Miami’s 110-95 Game 1 loss to the Spurs for good with under four minutes remaining in the game due to cramps.
Gatorade suggested that hydration (a Gatorade) “definitely would’ve helped” and also noted that they were “waiting on the sidelines” but he prefers to drink something else, however, it turns out that James, who is sponsored by Powerade, did in fact drink Gatorade during the game.

Maybe it’s Gatorade’s fault cause that sure doesn’t look like any Powerade bottle I have ever seen before. pic.twitter.com/UoAMXiWJKP
