Screaming Kevin Love is the world's most adaptable sports meme

Kevin Love has seen things over his nine-year NBA career. He has experienced the highs, the lows — sometimes he’s made us laugh. On Monday night he came face-to-face with his own basketball mortality, and the result was pure terror.

Who knows what was going through Love's mind. Perhaps it was the realization he became tasked with guarding Stephen Curry one-on-one at the three-point line. Maybe he realized midgame that he left the oven on before leaving Cleveland. Either way, this is the true face of fear.

In one scream, Kevin Love became the most adaptable man in the NBA.

Cinema ...

Music ...

Novels ...

It’s unclear whether Game 5 will be remembered in the annals of basketball history. Perhaps this is the start of the Cavaliers' comeback? It could all be for naught. Either way the game gave us one thing: The Scream.
