Gatorade Apologizes after Making Critical Remarks at Lebron James for Cramping in NBA Finals

My attention got carried after reading news from Yahoo Philippines that Lebron James got critics after cramping in the critical closing minutes of the first game series of the 2014 NBA Finals.

Lebron James Cramping

We all know that #Gatorade provides most of the products for athletes use to alleviate dehydration and since Lebron James is an endorser of a different brand which is #Powerade. Gatorade takes shots of the cramping scene of Lebron James on their official Twitter account that hooks millions of attention.

But later on #Gatorade apologizes on their tweet critics to Lebron James "Our apologies for our response to fans' tweets during [Thursday] night's Heat vs. Spurs game,". The company also said “"We got caught up in the heat of the battle. As a longtime partner of the Miami Heat, we support the entire team." – Source

Online critics also spew their thoughts about Lebron James cramping:

Lebron James also breaks its silence saying “"I really don't care what people say about me, I don't care about that sports group, the drink group that – I'm not even going to say their name,", he also added “"I'm not going to give them a light in the Finals. This is about the Spurs and the Heat, and it's not about everybody else, man. I don't care."

Probably, #Gatorade is being bitter on Lebron James because he prefers to be an endorser of its competitor.
