Rockets’ meme reaction to beating LeBron James & the Cavs
LeBron James proved this week that he knows a thing or two about social media. His single post of the Arthur meme garnered a ton of attention and made countless people crazy on social media trying to decipher its meaning.
But after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ loss to the Houston Rockets on Thursday, the Rockets’ social media team showed LeBron how professionals do memes. The Rockets posted a video on Instagram showing their mood after James Harden and co. knocked off the Cavs, and it was glorious.
The video showed two guys in the middle of a breakdancing battle, with the heads of Harden and James edited onto their bodies. While “James” was seemingly impressed by his own dance moves in the early going, “Harden” kicked it up a notch and delivered some killer moves which sent the audience into a frenzy.
While James Harden didn’t show off quite the same dance moves during the game, he got the same reaction from the Rockets faithful after he delivered a show-stopping performance. Harden finished with an incredible line of 35 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, and five steals to lead the Rockets to the 117-113 win.
Meanwhile, stay tuned to see whether LeBron James will respond to the video with one of his trademark memes.
