You know where all the juicy, air conditioning gossip goes down? That's right—"the streets."
Sitting alongside Stephen A. Smith, Skip Bayless and Cari Champion, Khaled launched into a full-blown conspiracy theory about the Spurs turning off the air conditioning at the AT&T Center in order to help them defeat Miami in the first game of the series.
"We're winning [Game 3] and then we're going to San Antonio where they turned the AC off," Khaled said. "They won that one game because they were cheaters...they won, but they cheated. See, they practiced with no heat."
Naturally, Bayless wanted to hear where Khaled received this top secret information.
"Do you know that for a fact?" Bayless asked. "Who's your source on that?"
"The streets!" Khaled said.
Of course. Who else would Gregg Popovich confide in about secret, boiler room practices at the AT&T Center other than "the streets"?
Both Smith and Bayless seemed to doubt Khaled's respect for the Spurs—a distinction which didn't bother the producer. Khaled knows San Antonio cheated, and it'll have to take that shame to the grave.
"See, with their legacy, they gotta take that win with a cheating," Khaled said. "I respect everyone, but I can't respect somebody turning the AC off and cheating."
Khaled went on to claim that the Spurs manipulated the system and had air conditioning in their locker rooms—facts no news source claimed or was able to substantiate after Game 1.
So does Khaled know something we don't know? Does the Miami fan who answers tough questions with "We have the ring" have private knowledge of the Spurs locker room?
We may never know who Khaled's sources are, but we do know this: AT&T Center Parkway didn't say nothing to no one, and neither did the North PanAm Expressway. So either East Commerce is dry snitching, or one of these streets and/or boulevards is lying about what happened in San Antonio in Game 1.
Either way, DJ Khaled and the Heat don't love you no more, Skip Bayless. Not that they ever really did.
