The scoreboard read 11-point-something seconds left in regulation. The count had the Wizards up by 3. For the 47 some odd minutes prior to this moment, the game had been one helluva trip. An explosive 19-2 Wizards run to start the game triggered a Spursgasmic 21-3 response from San Antonio, and from that moment on, the Wizards were engaged in a tedious uphill battle before finally regaining the lead late in the 4th.
That’s when this happened:
Causing this reaction by the Wizards bench, as beautifully captured by Truth About It:
And now I can’t help myself but to dissect the hilarious facial reactions of select individuals in this Vine by offering you their pin-point resemblance of other well-known expressions. Here goes:
Nene is the facepalming Redskins logo.
A staple of DC Sports, this embarrassing rendition of the city’s professional football team’s logo has been the go-to image for Redskins fans to express their dismay and for non-Redskins fans to enhance their shit-talking. Nene became nothing short of the real-life version of this after Parker’s shot. Well played, big man.
Ramon Sessions is the ‘Face You Make’ Robert Downey Jr. meme.
Probably the precise, collective look of all Wizards fans when Parker hit that shot. Probably the precise, collective look of all Wizards fans since birth, actually.
Alan Anderson is Russell Westbrook’s ‘Y’all Trippin’ stank face.
If this was 2011, this disbelieving face would have been the effect of Jordan Crawford violently waving off a Trevor Booker screen in pursuit of a 32-foot heave. In 2015, it was the disbelieving face of Alan Anderson, struggling direly to understand how Parker could hit that shot over the outstretched arms of Marcin Gortat all in his grill.
