Spurs Had Locker Room Cooling Fans in Game 1, Didn't Give Any to Heat


The story that everyone is taking away from Game 1 of the NBA Finals is not that the San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat, it’s that the air conditioning broke inside the AT&T Center and began cooking everyone inside.

LeBron James cramped up and left the game, the players were overheated and things just got messy really quickly. But the story apparently doesn’t end there as if we go down the rabbit hole a bit, we discover that the Spurs may or may not have pulled one over on Miami.

Danny Green talked about the heatwave inside of the AT&T Center and noted that the San Antonio Spurs had cooling fans in their locker room to combat the heat while such a thing was nowhere to be seen inside of the Miami locker room.

It’s tough to say that this is some sort of violation of NBA rules, as you couldn’t have fully prepared for the air conditioning to breaking — or maybe you could. The Spurs sure seemed prepared for such a thing to happen and left the Heat out to roast.

That’s a suggestion of a conspiracy theory but it’s not hard to draw that conclusion. What this undoubtedly was is the most perfect case of homecourt advantage we’ve ever seen and it’s something that won’t sit well with Heat fans.

    Make them replay game 1!!!! that will teach them a lesson or maybe not.

    • Real M-Fing talk !!!

      No…. shift game 7 to Miami… lol there would be mass suicide on the streets

    This goes way beyond, just home cooking this goes into the realm of messing with a person’s health, we know the myriad of things that happens to the human body if left to overheated… The NBA needs to come out and make a statement and Adam saying “We wasn’t aware of that” is not going to get it done…. The NBA knows how the Fans feel about fair play in the league, this is not the same as purposely getting the opposing best player in foul trouble, This is Health…. For guys like Duncan, Parker and others to act like they played under the same conditions is sickening, they were able to cool down at half time and they had the Fans on their side so the conditions were miles apart !… they spend 100′s of millions on the arena but zero on backs ups, i am glad they chipped that extra 20 bucks to add one more graphics package to the giant screen at center court

    Yeah… I’m gonna say that is straight up dirty. Spurs should be fined for seeking a competitive advantage where none should exist.
