The Heat defeated Lakers 104-110 recently and added this post to their twitter page. The game was pretty much a neck to neck battle. The Lakers came up the deficit and led by 1-point as the buzzer came in for half time. However, they soon lost the lead in the 3rd quarter. After a fighting spirit in the 4th quarter they came up 25-points and lost by 6 in the end. Given that Heat were beaten in the 6 game series last year, Miami Heat clearly displayed a mockery of event with caption “IF WE WOULDA BEEN HEALTHY!…”. This was clear indication to the injured players of the franchise.

LA Lakers fans take on media and troll the post

A series of events lined up as soon as the post went viral. A lot of Lakers’ fans were out rages by the post. Fans clearly pointed out that this was an argument based on the injury woes of their team. The fans started trolling the post with numerous captions and images trolling the Miami Heat page.
