So Why Was Shane Battier Wiping Down LeBron James With A Towel? (Video)

Sports

A game 7 of the conference finals is usually intense, but during last night’s Heat-Pacers game to decide who would go into the championships, only one team showed up.

Indiana bowed down in the presence of greatness to let the King and the Heat wash them up by 23 points. LeBron James and company did what every great team does and closed out the series.

So with such a lopsided result, surely not too much energy was expended. Right? Apparently not. Shane Battier came to the aid of LeBron towards the end of the first half. Apparently as the huddle was getting wrapped up, he noticed some extra perspiration on the King’s arm. So he frantically wiped him down in yet another case of “no homo.”

Upon further review, what the hell was Battier doing? Was this some kind of superstitious, 17.9 seconds left in the 2nd quarter ritual? Or maybe he was invisibly cut and was wiping up some of that invisible blood. Neither of those answers sound likely.

Shane Battier was simply admiring LeBron’s muscles and felt the sudden urge to stroke him. And just like any veteran player, he went ahead and did it. Nothing wrong with that. Wait.
