This month, we're going to determine the greatest animated sports GIF of all time, and we're putting it to a vote. Can Rollerblading Raptors Mascot possibly lose this tournament? Well, it's up to you. But we hope not.
WEST REGION -- FIRST ROUND
(4) AARON DOBSON'S INSANE CATCH
(13) RUSSELL WESTBROOK GETS DIRKED
(4) Hello, my name is AARON DOBSON'S INSANE CATCH.
I am one of the most absolutely bonkers catches in recent memory. It isn't just that it's no-look, over-the-shoulder, and one-handed. It's that he twisted his hand backwards to catch it. That seems like it should not be possible.
Well, it was, because gravity had clearly shifted (please note the "wall" in the background that is clearly just a lawn). This game was played on the Moon.
(13) Hello, my name is RUSSELL WESTBROOK GETS DIRKED.
Here, Dirk Nowitzki looks even more illustrated-by-Shel-Silverstein than he usually does. He is a crafty NBA veteran, and like every other crafty NBA veteran, he is a total punk-ass. This worked, by the way. Westbrook was hit with a technical foul.
