More jarring than the fact Game 1 was played amid 90-degree temperatures after an air conditioning malfunction in San Antonio is ex-Dolphin Jonathan Martin alluding to LeBron James’ lack of toughness on Twitter.
Tweet of the night. RT @j_martin71 With that said… C'mon bruh. Drink a Gatorade & get out there

Suffering from cramps throughout the second half, James left the contest for good late in the fourth after appearing unable to even walk to the Heat bench.
In case you’ve been on a sabbatical for the past year, Martin left the Dolphins during the last NFL season after being directly involved in a bizarre bullying scandal with teammate Richie Incognito. There was sympathy for Martin at first, but that quickly vanished after over a thousand text messages between the two were released. He was traded to the 49ers in March.
The chutzpah of this tweet is baffling. Martin has since deleted it because of course he did, but not before screenshots and retweets swarmed. He continued afterward with tweets of Heat praise. Like former teammate Mike Pouncey, some guys just don’t get it.

Martin wasn’t the only one.
Ps. I hope MJ was watching. #midol
