Making sense of 2011 NBA Finals…Reddit-style

I am going to leave the serious analysis of the 2011 NBA Finals to Jon, Devon, and our other writers who are more passionate and knowledgeable about the NBA than I am.

While we wait for their perspective, I’ll instead do what I do best: find outstanding links as well as hilarious ways to put big moments into context.

The latter is below, presented in no particular order. Just a random assortment of humorous yet illuminating perspectives on one of the most epic NBA Finals I can remember.

This comment made me laugh:

JJ Barea: “I will take the ring though I do not know the way.”

Dirk: “I will help you bear this burden, JJ Baggins, as long as it is yours to bear.”

Terry: “If, by my life or death, I can protect you, I will. You have my shot.”

Chandler: “And you have my boards.”


Of course, someone made this into a GIF. It basically encapsulates LeBron’s post game press conference, in which he played a plaintive violin for himself.

This is a pretty clever addition to the Most Interesting Man in the World meme.

This, of course, was inevitable. It’s also true.

This probably made me laugh more than any of the others. The title is essential.

So Lebron…

Pay attention to who is missing (not that Dwyane Wade really did anything special in the 4th quarter last night; but at least he has many times before).
