Besides baseball, football, and soccer, basketball is one of the most famous games played in the United States. The controlling and governing body of basketball, National Basketball Association (NBA), is the third richest sports league in the world. NBA is a cash cow for all the parties involved, from players to team owners. It is a source of entertainment and a point of pride for passionate basketball fans who cheer for their favorite team. As the title suggests, this topic is exclusively for NBA fans - especially those who are searching for some hilarious NBA memes. Take a look at these 12 funny NBA and basketball memes that are sure to make you laugh!
1.Here Comes An Anthony Davis Meme!

Whoa, what a way to kick-start this topic! When you are famous and have a unibrow, don't expect the world to be kind to you! Even if you won an Oscar Award or a Nobel Prize, people would still talk about your weird eyebrows more than your actual achievement! The 24-year-old lad in the meme, Anthony Davis, is an extraordinary player. He is the New Orleans Pelicans team's power forward. He is talented, but he is just stuck with a bad team. This guy was a member of the USA basketball team that won a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

2.When Kobe Bryant Ended His Career With An Assist!

Kobe ended the final game of his iconic 20-season-long career, against Utah Jazz, with a deep outlet pass to Jordan Clarkson, who then sealed the game for Lakers with an easy dunk. The Black Mamba is inarguably one of the worst ball hogs in the history of NBA. Beginning from 1996 until his final season in 2016, Kobe's average AST is 4.7. The number is clearly on the lower side because he had 1346 games under his belt. At an average of 5.11 assists per game, Michael Jordan is a lot better than Kobe when it comes to passing the ball to teammates.

3.I Only Miss You When I'm Breathing!

Shaquille O'Neal is one of the worst free throw shooters in the history of basketball! We don't call him the worst because there are NBA stars who are poorer than Shaq concerning free throws. Shaquille's free throw percentage is 52.7%. He only managed to score 5935 times out of 11,252 attempts. With a free throw percentage of 51.1%, NBA Hall of Famer, Wilt Chamberlain, is the second worst free throw shooter. At 41.4%, Bell Wallace is the king of free throw fails!

4.The Photographer Said They Had To Handcuff Kobe For This Picture!

As mentioned earlier, Kobe is someone who always wants to have the ball in his hands even if he is not on the court, playing. It appears Kobe posed for a photo along with D'Angelo Russell as a part of team photo shoot. He is always seen with a ball in hand even in those group photos! We wonder what the Black Mamba might have been telling to himself while posing for this picture. Being a ball hog highlights a player's confidence and enthusiasm, but the same behavior makes them a bad team player. Most people who hate Kobe dislike him because of his selfish behavior on the court.

5.That Would Be A Great Thing, Isn't It?

Flopping sucks, man. It is like the basketball version of diving. Unlike soccer, cheating has no place in basketball. An average NBA fan finds it disheartening whenever they see a player pretend they are hurt or falling down on the court unnecessarily. It's something prevalent in soccer, and football fans around the world are kind of got used to it. As this meme says, Lebron James is one of the worst floppers in the history of NBA. When it comes to teams, Nets and Clippers flop the most.

6.Can't Choke In Finals If You Never Go!

It has been 44 years since New York Knicks won an NBA Championship. The last time they entered the Finals was in 1999, and as you may remember, they lost it to San Antonio Spurs. Knicks appeared eight times in Finals and lost six of them. They lost three consecutive Finals in 1951, 1952, and 1953! Knicks won NBA Championship twice, once in 1970 and the other time in 1973. As they have stopped appearing in Finals long ago, they no longer need to worry about choking in the finals!

7.When Bucks Ended Warriors Winning Streak At 28

2015-16 was a fantastic and record-breaking season for Golden State Warriors as they won 73 matches and lost just nine. The only two things they don't want to look back in the season are their loss to Milwaukee Bucks that ended their 28-game winning streak and losing the 2016 NBA Championship to Cleveland Cavaliers. This meme, apparently, makes fun of sad Warrior fans who thought their team could break the record of 33 straight wins set by Lakers during the 1971-72 season.

8.Kobe And Lebron Vs. Their Fans

Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are two of the iconic basketball players that millions of baseball fans around the world can instantly recognize. They are highly talented sportspersons, and they helped their teams win the championship on several occasions. The Lakers guard and Cavaliers guard had a harsh and competitive on-court relationship, but once they are out of it, they are good friends. Kobe on several occasions made it clear that he is friends with Lebron James, and even asserted that they both talk to each other more frequently than anyone can think!

9.James Harden In Ten Years!

The 27-year-old Houston Rocket's shooting guard is inarguably one of best scorers in the contemporary game. When he was new to the NBA scene, Harden hardly had facial hair! His beard has grown alongside his popularity over the years! James Harden used to look like a good kid during his early seasons, but reminds us an ancient warrior lately! As this meme speculates, do you think Harden will grow his beard even longer? Remember, his beard already earned him the nickname, The Beard!

10.Lakers Then Vs. Lakers Now

It is true that many Lakers fans are unhappy with the way their team is progressing in the last couple of years. It has been nearly seven years since L.A. Lakers won an NBA Championship. The dissent usually results in memes like these, but wait, we have no idea who created this meme - between a disgruntled Lakers fan and someone who hates Lakers badly. Anyway, one can't compare someone like D'Angelo Russell with Kobe Bryant. While limiting oneself to the bench citing sore throat as a reason doesn't sound like a manly excuse, we also need to remember that Russell is just a 21-year-old guy and he has a long way to go!

11.Your Face When You Lose To The New York Knicks!

Knicks were one of the most feared and competitive NBA teams until the early 90s. They came close to winning the second, third, and fourth NBA Championships, held in the years 1951, 1952, and 1953. They earned a couple of championships in the early 70s and went on to dominate the game until the beginning of the 90s. Knicks have always been unlucky, as the team has repeatedly failed to clinch a championship despite having star players in the team like Carmelo Anthony. Indeed, this is how anyone feels when they lose a game to New York Knicks!

12.Why Did I Buy Bobcats?

Charlotte Hornets, formerly known as Charlotte Bobcats, aren't a popular NBA franchise at all, but why did Michael Jordan purchase them? He was aware that they weren't going to win anything big, and his decision to buy the team baffled many. Firstly, Michael Jordan grew up in North Carolina, so he might have thought it was a good idea to own his home team and drive them toward becoming a top franchise. Secondly, Jordan acquired Bobcats very cheaply. He was right! Charlotte Hornets' net worth has soared in the recent years, thanks to Jordan's charisma and sharp business skills! By the way, Make sure to check out these Crying Michael Jordan memes.
