The world of sports has produced plenty of extraordinary moments over the past 12 months. From the Eagles winning their first Super Bowl to the Warriors capturing their third NBA championship in the last four seasons against the Cavaliers, not to mention Alabama and Villanova each adding another piece of hardware to their respective trophy cases, 2018 was one for the books. And boy, did it fly by.
Among many of those remarkable moments were some mouth-gaping plays that defied human belief and left us utterly speechless. Whether it was a game-winning shot at the buzzer or a diving catch with the season on the line, one play can often determine a game’s outcome and change the course of history—then we forever immortalize it in Gif form. So, as we look back at the year that was, these were the best plays—the ones that we couldn’t stop watching over and over again—from 2018.
