Ariel Hernandez only started it because he was bored and looking for something to do on Twitter. What he created—especially for Yankees and Heat fans—might be considered a social media masterpiece.
The 16-year-old native of Miami and massive sports fan has spent the past few days compiling an impressive thread of iconic and epic sports moments that feature plenty of the most memorable plays from the last dozen years or so in the NBA, NFL, and MLB.
Hernandez started the thread late Sunday night when he was "thinking of things I could do on Twitter." His criteria: Every moment had to be about "getting you hyped."
Going by the Twitter handle @Flash07, the thread has amassed some impressive engagement numbers, especially on the posts featuring his favorite basketball player, Dwyane Wade, and dunks from Kobe Bryant and a buzzer beater from Tyreke Evans.
But his most popular—and obviously favorite—is Ray Allen's corner three from Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals.
“Ray Allen to me was my favorite moment because I’m a huge fan," Hernandez said. "We were on the brink of losing those finals."
Hernandez also mixed in a few that were slightly off-beat moments, like Joakim Noah's infamous shading of Cleveland.

Have to have ODB in there.
Hernandez wants to keep adding more moments over the ensuing days.
"I’m planning to add more A-Rod, more Dwyane Wade and a little bit more of football and soccer," Hernandez said. "I live in Miami. I'm a Heat fan and Dolphins fan. I’m more of a Yankees fan than a Marlins fan. When my dad came here from Cuba, he started watching the Yankees game so I started watching them. My favorite player growing up was A-Rod.”
In theory, the thread will continue until Hernandez gets bored with it and until he stops randomly remembering the moments that got him hyped.
“To me, my plan is to continue this thread until I run out of moments," he said. "I just don't want to be too annoying.”
Trust us. You're not.
