One basketball team has made it into the NBA Finals and the other team will be determined in two-to-three more games. There were bad plays over the past week, sure. But as I discuss in the below video, it was all about the reaction shots this week. And hipsters.
Since we love you all so much, here is a smattering of the worst plays and reactions of the week, in GIF form.
Worst (Best) Hipster
Oh, Swole Memphis Hipster. It takes real skill to grow a mustache that wispy.
Worst Body English
Player: Tony Allen
You either tweaked something with all that body English, or you're auditioning for the role of a hybrid Prince/James Brown Frankenstein's monster. (Would watch.)
Player: Marc Gasol
No, dude. You don't use your face to catch basketballs. Do you guys even READ the Week in Worst? Sheesh. No wonder you got swept by those boring old dudes.
Player: LeBron James
Remember, everyone: when you stupidly and egregiously turn the ball over at a crucial moment in a playoff game, IMMEDIATELY go for a wedgie on the nerd who caught it.
Worst Inbound Pass
Player: Roy Hibbert
What's the opposite of butterfingers? Oh. Oh yeah, right.
Worst Thousand-Yard Stare
Player: Zach Randolph
It'll be okay, buddy. Look, I bought you a Buncha Crunch! No? Nothing?
Worst Mortal Injury
Player: Tony Allen
Allen: Lo! Lo, I have been slain! 'Tis my face was well-struck by the knave. Now my face is no more.
Ginobili: Dude, I barely touched you.
Allen: Be that acid upon thine fingers? HAVE THEE THE MUTANT ABILITIES OF TOAD FROM YE OLDE X-MEN BOOKES MOSTE COMICKE?
Ginobili: Get up.
Allen: Mine face, 'tis demolished like a ramshackle bungalow that be'est condemned by yon housing authority. O THE SLINGS AND ARROWS OF THIS INJURY.
Ginobili: /is already back at the bench
Worst Jump Ball
Worst at Basketball
Team: Memphis Grizzlies

NOT EVEN WORTH MY TIME FEH
