Most Meme-orable Moments
10. Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots’ Streak of Excellence
The New England Patriots are a prized NFL team, and they won the Super Bowl in fascinating fashion earlier this year. Belichick is the brains behind the GOAT and the rest of the stellar team. Many tribute as much responsibility for their success to Tom Brady as they do to the head coach. He has a knack for getting the right lineup together and turning good players into great ones.
9. Kendrick Lamar’s critically-acclaimed DAMN.
Kendrick Lamar is one of the greatest rappers of all time and arguably the greatest rapper of the current generation. His recent album DAMN. brought hits such as “HUMBLE.” and enlightening “DUCKWORTH.” However, the creepy, interesting album cover also made for a series of unreal memes.
Taylor Swift is back with a point to prove this year. She will drop reputation in November and tour in 2018. For any true fans who have been through her hectic, questionable 2016, this meme gets you.
7. Meryl Streep and The Killers
Meryl Streep is a major actress in Hollywood. From her talented roles throughout the years, one of the audience’s favorite moments was this during the 2017 Academy Awards. The memes spilled out after. This one in support of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside” classic is a favorite.
6. Lebron James’s Facial Expressions
Oh, Lebron. His expressions and charismatic playing style is one of the many reasons fans love him. After a season that took the Cavaliers to the end, this particular expression is a favorite. A slightly confused, not-having-it stare, James caught the camera perfectly.
5. Mariah Carey’s NYE Disaster
HA. HAHAHAHAHA. HA. Mariah Carey rang in the New Year with a performance that news outlets dubbed “the one that 2016 deserved” after all of the turmoil the past year leading up to the election. Due to mic issues, she basically did not perform and caused a boatload of backlash.
4. Draymond Green and Kevin Durant
Draymond Green and Kevin Durant are teammates on the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors won the 2017 NBA Championship. This moment, when Green is giving Durant some serious advice, is a token picture for any secrets between two people. It crosses the line between music and sports, as Green explains in the meme why JAY-Z’s new album is called 4:44. Pretty freaking funny for hip-hop fans.
3. Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor
Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor was one of the craziest, most-hyped fights between a legendary boxing star and a MMA fighter who had never boxed a round in his life. No surprise, Mayweather won. He’ll cash that check now.
2. Drake’s More Life and the Roll Safe Meme
1. Lebron James once left for the Heat and will never be able to live it down
This meme is unreal for any Lebron fans who had a real issues with his departure to Miami Heat years prior. He left the Cavs to pursue a super team with the Heat, left in media-frenzy fashion, and then returned years later after he had grown up. When it looked like the Cavs would lose against the Warriors this year (they did), this meme circulated. It shows him switching teams last minute in order to win the NBA Finals. Below the belt? A little. But the joke never gets old.
