Something about sitting down had James Harden grimacing after a Game 3 loss on Friday, which you can see in the very first seconds of this clip. It wasn’t a question, since he proceeded to answer those as diplomatically as ever. No, Harden might’ve just been a little sore or something.

Of course it turned into a meme within moments. Thanks for that, Sam.

And so, with that tweet, the floodgates of this brand new James Harden meme were opened, and in came the jokes.

I’m gonna include my own tweet now, because I have no sense of personal shame.

Before long, it turned meta.

Which led us to this one.

Yes! Now that one is incredibly accurate. We welcome our benevolence meme dictators, and pray only that they treat us with honor and respect.
