This Week In GIFs: Excessive Flopping, Rebuked Gestures, And Shots To The Groin

gifstitle5-11

Welcome to the inaugural installment of This Week In GIFs. Cast your vote, and help us determine the greatest animated sports GIF of the last seven days.

Welcome to the inaugural installment of THIS WEEK IN GIFs, a celebration of the greatest animated GIFs of the last seven days. We at SB Nation love GIFs, in part because videos do not exist on the Internet and this is all we have, and in part because they're able to succinctly and elegantly capture the greatest and funniest sports moments.

Every Friday, we will be putting the week's greatest GIFs to a vote. The poll will remain open until Sunday at 11 p.m. Eastern. Enjoy!

(Oh, and if you see any great animated GIFs in the future, please submit them for consideration by tweeting me at @jon_bois.)

JAVALE MCGEE GOALTENDS FROM INSIDE OF RIM

Pro tip: the best part of this GIF is Kobe Bryant's reaction. He wanted to mime "that was a goal tend," wasn't sure how to express it, and just mimed shooting a basketball instead.

Anyway, I don't know who the most goaltended player in NBA history is, but JaVale McGee is surely the goaltender to the throne. <-------------------------------- joke

GENTLEMAN GETS HIT IN THE GENTLEMEN

Here is a baseball bouncing off a man's penis and hitting a woman in the face. Also, I'd like to point out that there are two kids with baseball gloves in this photo. One has his fist in the glove while he screams in terror at the baseball, and the other is using his glove as a shield. Children should be against the law.

THE GRIZZLIES' FRONTCOURT

This is the dark horse of the contest. Remember how "Home Improvement" used all those weird, sophisticated transitions and screen wipes? That's Zach Randolph. There's the comedic scene of Marc Gasol's "beat people up with your torso" defense, and then Z-Bo wipes across the screen, mugging Blake Griffin. Cut to Tim Taylor in the kitchen, trying to figure out how to remove a crudely-sawn chunk of plywood that is Krazy-glued to his forehead (which will be the Grizzlies' off-season, basically).

EXCESSIVELY AMBITIOUS JOSE BAUTISTA

PITCHf/x is a computerized system that tracks and records the location and movement of pitches. Let's see what PITCHf/x has to say about this one!

CHRIS PAUL FLOPS ON REFEREE

God I love flopping. I really do. It's a testament to how tough these athletes are: they don't feel pain, and that's why they're so terrible at pretending to be someone in pain.

I found an animated GIF and now I'm sharing it with you on the Internet! What's the big deal? It's not a big deal. Who cares? It's not a big deal.
