LeBron James cried after winning the NBA championship and the internet can't stop meme-ing it
On Sunday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers won Game 7 of the NBA Finals, clinching the championship for the first time in the team’s history. LeBron James, who returned to the team in 2014 after leaving for the Miami Heat in 2010, had a particularly life-changing game—scoring 27 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists. LeBron became so emotional when his team sealed the victory, appearing in the newest iconic sports picture that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
However, as we all know, the more popular something is on the internet, the more likely it is to get meme-ed. This photo was barely online for 10 minutes before the riffs started rolling in. We can’t help but laugh along, since Lebron is emotional over something so amazing. Plus, he’s probably so happy right now that he’d probably contribute a few ideas of his own (seriously, LeBron, email us!).
While we’re sure there are many more memes of the photo to come, we’ve rounded up our favorites (so far) below:
And, for those of us who were too busy watching Game of Thrones last night to see the game, there’s a little something for all of us with this one:
All joking aside, this win was well-deserved. Congratulations, Cleveland!
