It didn’t take long for the internet to be set ablaze last night during game 1 of the NBA Finals. With a little over 4 minutes in the very 1st quarter, Kevin Durant received an inbound pass and the rest was history. Durant took one quick pump fake with LeBron James guarding him and that’s all she wrote. Durant took off to the hoop for an uncontested dunk and LeBron’s ankles were left somewhere in the first row.
Let’s see what Twitter was saying about KD breaking LeBron’s ankles last night.

Any other player slips on a wet spot and it's no big deal. LeBron does it and it's gonna be considered an ankle breaker for months. Smh

Durant led the Golden State Warriors with 38 points and to a dominating 113-91 victory. But no one is going to remember that. Everyone is just going to be talking about how he broke LeBron's ankles. RIP LeBron's ankles and, after that game last night, probably RIP to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
