In a year with an NBA owner (Donald Sterling) being ousted for racist comments in a private conversation, an All-Star player (Roy Hibbert) making his name synonymous with a garbage can, the San Antonio Spurs finally winning a championship again and LeBron James starring, cramping, losing his hair and eventually leaving the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers, you can say there was plenty to make memes about.
Lance Stephenson of all people turned himself into a star for a short while thanks to his idiotic antics during the NBA playoffs. The ‘Real MVP meme’ by Kevin Durant has crossed over into many other genres. Kobe Bryant, without actually being any good or helping out his team, brought plenty of attention to his ball hogging skills. It’s been a busy year.
