The 2017 NBA Finals were intense and tempers flared throughout, including Game 5 on Monday (June 12), when David West and Tristan Thompson got in each other’s face.
West began swinging his arms and pushed Cavs guard Kyrie Irving away as the two battled for a rebound. So, Thompson immediately came to the rescue, getting right in the face of the Warriors forward.
As announcer Mike Breen stated, Thompson and West were “nose-to-nose”, but they were a bit closer than that. More like “mouth-to-mouth”.
The following image of the two spread across the internet quickly, with fans either poking fun at it with some hilarious commentary or turning the image into a meme.
Check out some of the hilarity below:
