The struggle to go VIRAL is real folks. And the major players in the Sport Media world are trying extra extra extra hard to catch the proverbial lightning in a bottle with the best original meme that will take their brand to social media success.

Presenting the Worst Meme Attempts from Last Night
(Memes will be rated on a scale of 💩 to 💩💩💩💩💩)
Rating – 💩💩💩💩 Bad Boys the movie was famously set in Miami. The Rockets play in Houston. Neither Chris Paul nor James Harden is a “bad boy” in any sense of the term. And the whole thing is topped off with a D – level photoshop job. Epic Fail by Slam here folks.
Rating – 💩💩 ESPN loves a good pun and the visual/word pun is the highest form of pun but facts is facts and the fact is you ain’t going viral with bowling unless it involves a bowling ball to the nards.
Rating – 💩💩💩💩💩 It’s really cute when the old fuddy duddy networks try to get in on the “me me” game. Here we have CBS attempting to troll TNT and ESPN.
