Earlier this week, we found out what Michael Jordan thinks about the MJ crying meme that has taken over the Internet over the course of the last year and a half. As it turns out, he doesn’t hate it like we thought he would. He actually thinks it’s “funny.”
Allen Iverson doesn’t feel the same way about what has become peoples’ second favorite sports-related meme—the one that features AI stepping over Tyronn Lue:
Bleacher Report caught up with AI earlier today after it was announced that he is one of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame finalists, and he revealed that he’s not a big fan of the Tyronn Lue meme. He does think it's “funny,” but he also said that he’s friendly with Lue and doesn’t like that people have turned that moment into a meme.
“I don’t like it,” he said. “It’s funny, but that’s my man. I just don’t like when people tease him about that. That’s my dude, that’s my man, and I wish him the best.”
Coincidentally, Lue was mentioned during the HOF announcement today, and AI laughed about it:
But AI still isn’t on board with people using the meme. Check out the clip above to hear him talk about it.
