Nick Nurse’s O-face was an Easter gift.

It doesn’t take much to become a meme these days, but Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse gave the internet a real gift during the NBA playoffs. A truly universal reaction.

During Game 4 against the Orlando Magic on Easter Sunday, a three-second violation call on Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet caused Nurse to appear frozen in shock, his mouth agape.

The Raptors ended up winning, but the memes had already hit by halftime.

The Game of Thrones crossover energy was there, too.
