After being left in a ditch to die a sad, lonely death after going down two games to none in the 2016 NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers have risen from the grave like the subject of a certain t-shirt LeBron James wore to practice ahead of Game 5. On the backs of Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and, of course, LeBron, what once seemed like a guaranteed second straight NBA championship for the Golden State Warriors has evaporated into a 3-3 series tie, and the Warriors are imploding.
Game 6 featured more than just a Cavs win. There was Steph Curry getting ejected for the first time in his career and launching his very gross mouthguard at a fan sitting courtside. There was Steve Kerr spending much of his postgame press conference asserting that his "unamimous MVP" was being jobbed by the refs. There was Ayesha Curry partaking in the very dangerous "tweet then delete" game, in which she called the NBA "rigged." The Warriors' golden facade faded like a California sunset, and the Internet was there to roast them into purgatory.
In the aftermath of Game 6, the Internet, and Twitter specifically, was at its finest. Let's take a look at some of its best work.
Someone turned Steph Curry being crossed over by Kyrie Irving into his very own Running Man Challenge:
Someone turned LeBron's sneer after blocking Steph Curry into a referendum on Coke Zero:
Someone captured the essence of this photo involving Tyronn Lue and multiple members of the Warriors perfectly:
Bleacher Report continued to work its Internet wizardry on videos of LeBron dunking:
A bunch of Twitter users found some 29-year-old white man whose name is Riley Curry and though he was Steph Curry's daughter, creating one of the best tweets of all time:
And finally, Ayesha Curry really had this coming:
So thank you, Internet, for making this historic Cavs comeback all the more enjoyable. I can only imagine what you'll be like if they pull this thing off on Sunday in the Bay.
