Durant hit the shot, but it’s his reaction to his teammates’ reaction that’s winning the internet.
In case you missed it, Kevin Durant hit a huge three-pointer from way outside in the waning seconds of game three of the NBA finals last night. The shot put the Golden State Warriors up 106 to 100 and led to them winning the game 110 to 102, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers in 0-3 hole for the series.
And while the shot was indeed a thing of beauty…

It was his teammates’ reaction that people really fell in love with, or more accurately Durant’s reaction to their reaction. When Steph Curry and Draymond Green decided to yell in Durant’s face after the shot, he couldn’t have looked more like an exhausted parent dealing with two screaming children if he tried.

Obviously, such a picture was ripe for meme-ing, and Twitter was only too happy to oblige.

No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 0-3 deficit to win the finals, but it’s never wise to count out LeBron James, who many people feel is the greatest player in the history of the game.
Then again, there’s a reason this is the most popular LeBron meme right now.

And naturally, someone already thought to combine the two. Could this be a vision of things to come?
