The Internet Is Crazy About Matthew Dellavedova Memes Right Now (Pics)

Matthew Dellavedova memes

Matthew Dellavedova was not drafted. The Cavaliers followed the Australian’s career with the St. Mary’s Gaels, and they liked him. Just not enough to use a draft pick on him. So they waited until the 2013 NBA Draft was over, then signed Delly as an undrafted free agent, giving him a two-year contract with $100,00 guaranteed.

At first they thought they’d wasted their money. Dellavedova was terrible in the summer league that year and terrible in the preseason. But the Cavs liked his hustle and work ethic, so they took a chance and gave him a roster spot.

On Sunday night, Dellavedova rewarded the Cavaliers for their faith with a shutdown defensive performance against NBA MVP Steph Curry. Then, on Tuesday night, Delly officially became the unlikely breakout star of the NBA Finals with a 20-point, five-rebound, four-assist performance.

Now Dellavedova isn’t just some Australian with a reputation for playing dirty. He’s a meme. And the internet loves him.

Yep. This is why I love sports.
