With just over seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of Game 1 in the 2014 NBA Finals, LeBron James suffered what seemed like a rather severe cramp in his left leg.

As you can see below, the injury affected him quite a bit. Anyone who's suffered from cramps knows just how debilitating they can be. 

After testing it out, going out, coming back in, making a shot at the hoop and cramping up again, he then required a bit of assistance. 

What great player hasn't needed help getting off the court at some point or another? 

Michael Jordan had Scottie Pippen. Paul Pierce had his wheelchair. And now LeBron has the shoulders of teammates and Miami Heat staffers.
