The internets went crazy when LeBron James and his Miami Heat finally lost the 2011 NBA Finals in six games against the Dallas Mavericks. It was the culmination of a season long campaign of hate against the seemingly “evil” Heat.
Twitter in particular was the source of a treasure trove of jokes, memes, photoshops and general tomfoolery around the concepts of LeBron James crying, Scottie Pippen‘s crazy assertion that LeBron was the better player than Michael Jordan, the Mavs winning, Dirk Nowitzki being awesome, King James marrying Dwyane Wade in order to get a ring, LeBron’s inability to win in the Finals, going missing in the fourth quarter and his seeming “choker” mentality.
Rather than let all of masterpieces (and not-so-masterful-pieces) fall into the nether regions of the internet, I’ve saved them all for posterity. Look on and enjoy… [you’ll have to click the READ MORE link below for all of them — there are heaps]. I should note, apart from the animated GIF above, none of this work is mine, but has been sourced from twitter/facebook/forums as an indication of what has been spreading through social media.
