Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals paused for a beat late in the third quarter while everyone around the world digested Paul George blowing by LeBron James and then throwing down a one-handed dunk on top of Chris "Birdman" Andersen.
Then came the reaction in various forms, which for several NBA players watching at home, included Twitter. Anthony Morrow summed up the initial reaction of everyone watching the game perfectly.

James Harden weighed in with his impression of the finish over Birdman.
