A Short History Behind The “Crying Jordan” Meme

The "Crying Jordan" meme has become a staple on social media... and arguably the most popular of all-time.

The #2PointLead puts together a short documentary going behind the history of the MJ meme, its origin during his Hall of Fame induction speech back in 2009, and more.

The man behind the photo, AP photographer Stephan Savoia, shared his thoughts on his coverage of Jordan's Hall of Fame speech and how the rare moment showcased the legend's vulnerability. Later, he reveals how he was unaware about the meme... until the Wall Street Journal asked him about it seven years later.

The clip also features ESPN analyst Jay Williams and DJ Gallo of SportsPickle, who discusses the meme's popularity.
