15 Hilarious NBA GIFs
Oh GIF’s! What would life be like without you? That’s right, almost exactly the same, but slightly less obnoxious. Well, as silly as this technology is (and it’s quite silly), there are a disarming number of funny ones online. Without our good friend “GIFs,” I wouldn’t have known that LeBron has amazingly smelly farts or that Chris Bosh lacks male genitals. But now I do. And if you read this list, you will too.
15. Jack Being Jack
There’s a reason he was so good as the joker. The mans one creepy dude.
14. Announcer Gets “Toweled”
From now on, whenever an announcer gets a sweat towel to the dome, that announcer will be said to have been “toweled.” If you are on board, please retweet, Digg, and bump up on Reddit.
I have no idea what any of those things I just wrote mean.
13. Big Baby Davis Makes a Big Baby Face
If you think there’s any chance that he’s not thinking of a big, tall stack of pancakes while he’s making this face…then you just don’t know Big Baby Davis. Fun fact: Doc Rivers always takes BBD out for hotcakes if he can pull down a double-double. And judging by the look on his face, he’s about two boards away from an IHOP right there.
12. Chris Bosh Does…Whatever This Is
It looks like he’s doing one of those acting class exercises where you have to go through the full range of human emotions. Or he’s doing an impression of Brad Pitt at the end of Se7en.
11. Pau’s Loss Is Nene’s Big-Ass Grin
A personal favorite of mine. I can’t prove that Nene is intentionally looking into the camera here, but the direction he’s looking is a little too spot-on for him not to know exactly what’s up. I know that look. That’s the same look I get when I drink tequila.
10. The Lakers Are Enjoying…Something
I think this is their response to either the moon landing, the bin Laden news, or a psychic telling them they would be down 0-2 to the Mavs in the 2011 Playoffs.
9. Baron Davis Just Plain Falls Over
Decoding these GIFs is a bit like studying the Zapruder film. You really don’t know what you’re looking at. Why did BD fall over? There is no discernible reason in this clip. But he does. Hard. And that, my friends, is why this GIF is hilarious. Or at least mildly amusing.
8. Bruce Bowen Is Kind of a Dick
Bowen, embracing his reputation as the league’s dirtiest player, has thrown caution and underhanded tactics to the wind and has just started indiscriminately ninja-kicking everyone.
7. Is KG Trying to Be Scary?
Cause he’s not. Really, it appears that he’s either trying to pull off a really crappy Scarface impression. Or a bulldog. Whatever.
6. Carlos Boozer Gets Left Hanging
It’s really hard to look cool when this happens to you. You panic and do SOMETHING. Cause you can’t do nothing, because if you do nothing, it’s clear that you’re just accepting the fact that no one wanted to high five you, which is sad. So you end up doing something even worse, like an air five.
5. Why Does This Exist?
Someone actually made this. Someone actually sat at a computer and said, “I’m going to demonstrate, through a poorly animated GIF, the literal representation of the metaphorical that the Orlando Magic have dug for themselves against the Boston Celtics. Actually, they probably just said, “Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!” and beat the hell out of their dog, but you get the point. So dumb, it’s…hilarious.
4. Chris Bosh Has Ladyparts
…assuming he has any genitals at all. Moves like this make me more fired up than the Michael Vick thing (but still less than OJ). I don’t have anything funny to say here. I just want to badmouth Bosh, then the NBA officials. And, according to the poster of this GIF, he got the call because…of course he did.
3. Hey Mom! I’m on TV!
Dude. You’re a pro basketball player. Anyone with a camera will put you on TV if you just ask. I bet he’s keyed up because he racked up a double-double or something lame like that. Anyway, the baby gets its bottle.
2. Hey Mom! (cont.)
It’s important that he let the world know what a terrible dancer he is. Because if he doesn’t, who will? Not the liberal media, that’s for damn sure.
Lock. Pop. Repeat till you get laid.
1. LeBron Farts
If you need this one explained to you, I really can’t help you. He’s like 8′ 2″ and 748 pounds. I bet that smells like a pile of dead, wet otters decomposing during a New Orleans summer. Varejao deserves it though. He was an ass during that holdout when he went back to Brazil.
