Week 11 of This Week In GIFs saw one of the most closely-contested polls to date. Prince Fielder's graceless slide and Chris Paul's absolute sonning of Anthony Davis made strong efforts, but the winner, with 216 votes (27 percent of the vote), is ...

I suspected that this guy deserved to win, and y'all agreed. I mean, look. These guys are peak athletes, they're surely exhausted, and they're suffering one of many grueling hill climbs.
