Critical reviews from Round 3:

Dan Majerle gif is overrated. After viewing it 10 times, it's old.

Majerlegif [...] has so many subtle moments, it requires a lot more repeated viewing. The fact that he's eating. The initial catch. The turning of the ball in the hand. The awestruck wonder on Dan's face as he considers the ball. Then the final denouement where Dan shares this spherical wonder to the world, the awestruck look still plastered on his leathered face, highlighted by the amazing wardrobe choice he made that evening. Finally, the caption, which is just icing on the cake.

Critical reviews from Round 3:

I see two distinct schools of thought:

There is the Liukin/Feck sect, who see these gifs as plot driven and care only about the action being portrayed.

Then there's the WonderDan/AdmiralGIFBOMB sect, who value overall GIFtography. The action involved is merely a component of the whole.

WONDERDAN/ADMIRALBOMB FTW FOREVER

David Robinson getting his shizz blown up by the Log Lady from "Twin Peaks?" That's art, my friend.

The David Robinson moment is a GIF, which is what it was born to be.
