SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The return of Kevin Durant as the Warriors are on the brink of elimination means memes. Lots of memes.
Steve Kerr made Durant’s return official Monday during a press conference before Game 5.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP has been sidelined more than a month with a strained calf.
The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors in the series 3-1, and are one loss away from seeing their quest for a third straight championship come to an end.
The only time a team has come back from being down 3-1 in the NBA Finals was Cleveland — against Golden State in 2016.
Many believe Durant is the Warriors only hope in overcoming the deficit.
And now that he’s back, Twitter is reacting the only way Twitter knows how to — with memes.
