Aside from seeing seven NBA All-Stars share the court, everyone was expecting the Kevin Durant-Russell Westbrook drama to escalate. The basketball gods seemed to have heard everyone's prayers when the estranged OKC running mates finally ran into each other:
Russ had the last laugh, as he fell an assist shy of a triple-double (34p, 10r, 9as), leading the Thunder to a 108-91 over the Warriors (KD had 21). But the "real MVPs" of the game are the netizens, who had a ball reacting to the intense face-to-face meeting:
Well somebody's gonna be up all night
Or just do some bad lip reading
Careful with the venom, Van Damme
Ugh, this joke is getting old
You don't say?
Sweet blow-by-blow account
When all else fails—yo momma
From one snake to another
A game away from the 2016 Finals
Only a KD-Russ fight can bring back the word 'kerfuffle'
Because not all hoodies are made equally, here's a look at the three main breeds
Snaps from Pia, Liza, Marian, Solenn, and Nadine top the list
Not just because LaVar Ball said so
Next-gen heroes on the rise. The coming of 'unconventional' hoops. The end of Big Four's dominance? Which storyline will rule in 2018?
