“I Went From Getting Snitched On To Putting A Ring On”

Nick Young, also known by his God-given nickname “Swaggy P,” is hella excited about winning his first NBA championship, and he isn’t letting ANYONE steal his joy, you hear me?

Even though he only scored a total of 5 points throughout the entire 4-game series, Young is probably the most excited Golden State Warrior. See the below video of him strutting down the floor at the end of Game 4 as the clock ran out for proof:

After the game, he called himself the “Swag Champ,” while cradling a massive bottle of Moët champagne.

He even talked about how he’ll be in a museum one day.

And he also gave a Warriors beat reporter a champagne bath, because why not?

But, perhaps, the best moment of Swaggy P’s post-game victory press tour came when he said the following quote: “I’ve came along way, haven’t I? I went from getting snitched on, to putting a ring on”—an obvious reference to that one time his L.A. Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell broke the guy code and exposed him cheating on his then-girlfriend Iggy Azalea.

And, of course, Twitter seems to be enjoying every moment of Swaggy P’s celebration:

Your faves may not have a ring, but guess what? SWAGGY P DOES!

Funniest Reactions to Smith’s 2018 Finals Game 1 Goof

When you f**k up your team’s chances of winning the first NBA Finals matchup, you can expect to become the butt of endless jokes and the subject of countless memes all over the Internet. We’re talking about you, J.R. Smith!

The last minute of Thursday night’s (May 31) Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals was pretty wild, to say the least. First, the refs questionably overturned a charge on Kevin Durant. Then, George Hill of the Cavaliers had a chance to win the game with two free throws, of which one he missed. But when J.R. Smith retrieved the rebound, that’s when sh*t hit the fan.

With less than 5 seconds remaining, and the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors tied at 107, J.R. Smith grabbed an offensive rebound off George Hill’s missed free throw and had a chance to win the game.

But instead of taking a shot or passing it to another teammate to attempt a shot, Smith took the ball out beyond the arc just as the shot clock expired, as if his team had the lead and he was trying to run the clock out or draw a foul. LeBron’s reaction was priceless:

And here’s the video footage:

Smith’s blunder forced the game into overtime, and the Warriors ended up taking a 1-0 series lead with a 124-114 victory. After the game, there were conflicting explanations for Smith’s terrible decision at the end of the fourth quarter.

“He thought we were up one,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. But Smith said he knew what the score was. “I was trying to get enough to bring it out to get a shot off,” Smith told reporters. “I knew we were tied; I thought we were going to call timeout. If I thought we were ahead, I’d have held on to the ball and let them foul me.”

Regardless of what Smith “thought,” he f**ked up bad. REAL BAD. And the memes were swift, brutal, plentiful, and, above all, HEE-LARIOUS.

Chris Paul Out for Game 7 in Houston Against Golden State Warriors Due to Hamstring Injury

The Houston Rockets will not have one of their starting players tonight when they take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference NBA Finals. Chris Paul will be out for the game as he is currently suffering from a hamstring injury.

Coach Mike D’Antoni broke the news in a press conference Monday evening (May 28) just an hour-and-a-half before the game in Houston, saying “there was just now way” Paul would be able to play tonight.

Paul also missed the Rockets’ 86-115 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 Saturday in Oakland. Paul was average 21.1 points and 5.8 assists per game in the playoffs this year.

CP3 was one of the Rockets’ star players in their past two wins, average 23.5 points in those games and was a key player in helping them comeback in the fourth quarter of Game 4, which they won by three points: 95-92.

Unless James Harden can pull something big off by himself, without Chris Paul, Houston will most likely lose to Golden State, meaning that the 2018 Finals will probably be GSW vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers—their fourth matchup in a row.

Draymond Green Jr.’s Hilarious Side-Eye Goes Viral After Golden State’s Game 7 Win Against Houston Rockets

After the Golden State Warriors defeated the Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals in Houston, Draymond Green’s adorable 4-month-old son, Draymond Jr., stole the show at the post-game trophy ceremony.

While Draymond was being interviewed by sportscaster Ernie Johnson Jr., little Draymond looked like he was giving Johnson the side-eye—a hilarious moment that quickly went viral on Twitter.

The first half of Game 7 was a struggle for the Warriors, but Golden State got their sh*t together in the second half, outscoring the Rockets 33-15 in the third quarter.

Golden State ended up closing out the game 101-92 to claim the Western Conference title for the fourth straight year. They’ll face Cleveland—also for the fourth year in a row—in the 2018 NBA Finals. Game 1 will be hosted in Oakland.
