Kevon Looney channels Michael Jordan meme after Warriors' Game 6 win
Loon Epic Channels MJ Memes After Warriors' Game 6 Victory Originally Aired On NBC Sports Bayarea
Kevon Looney will never be confused with Michael Jordan, but after the Warriors' 110-96 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals at Chase Center, the Golden State center channeled the GOAT.
Looney was reinstated on the starting lineup in place of rookie Jonathan Kuminga on Friday night. The Warriors were hoping Looney could minimize the advantage Memphis had with Steven Adams and Jaren Jackson Jr. up front.
The 6-foot-9 looney did more than neutralize Adams. The veteran Warriors big man hauled in an amazing 22 rebounds, had four points, gave up five assists and was a 10-plus in 35 minutes.
Shortly after the Warriors' decisive win, Looney was asked by NBC Sports Bay Area's Grant Liffmann how he felt on the court.
"I felt great," Looney told Liffmann. “Exhausted towards the end but I just wanted to get out there and play physically. In the last game we were bullied on the boards so I took that personally. I wanted to go out there and do my job and set the tone of the game from the start. And I was able to zone in a little bit, do rebounds and make some big plays.
Jordan famously dropped the "I took that personally" during the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls documentary, The Last Dance, which was released in Summer 2020.
Looney and the Warriors advanced to the Western Conference Finals, where they will await the winner of Sunday's Game 7 between the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks.
Certainly, Jordan will be watching as Looney tries to help the Warriors reach their sixth NBA Finals in eight seasons.
