LeBron James brought his talents to Miami this year to complete what should have been the first ultimate triumvirate the NBA has ever seen.
James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh were hailed as superheroes who were going to lead the Miami Heat to championship after championship after championship.
And we all believed it too. In fact, the Miami Heat put on a rather convincing spectacle during the finals. They continued to beat out their opponents (for the most part) and pull off moves like coming back in the last few minutes for a win after being down quite a few points.
That gave us hope as we stayed glued to the TV last night praying the Heat could pull off a win against Dallas Mavericks' caveman Dirk Nowitzki. And then we cried. Well, not really. Although even if there was only one tear, our head coach might have told the whole world anyway.
So when our hearts hurt, we make light of the situation, right? Here are the three best memes to commemorate the occasion.
