Sometimes irony makes a presence in life and slaps you clear across the face. This was pretty much the case when San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Jonathan Martin called Miami Heat star LeBron James out after the latter went down with a cramp in Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night.
And it was a doozy. While the tweet was deleted nearly immediate after Martin posted it, the enigmatic former second-round pick of the Miami Dolphins quickly became the butt of all jokes around the social media world.
First off, the tweet read like this…”Drink some Gatorade and get back on the court.”
Then the responses came flooding in at epic levels.

@KingJames Something silly and ridiculous to consider while you're bored. Jonathan Martin thinks you need to toughen up. LMAO

This is the best one.
After making comments about Lebron, Marcellus Wiley said Jonathan Martin should just #StayIncognito 😹😹😹

And then the ultimate troll came through with a tweet of epic proportions. Most of the time, we have no idea what Darnell Dockett is talking about, but this was pretty clear.
