#SideEyeHarden

Silly questions are going to happen. James Harden was hit with a question asking the NBA All-Star if he had found his rhythm after scoring 40 points in two straight games. He rightfully hit the interviewer with the side-eye to end all side-eyes to enter the GIF stratosphere.

Kobe Bryant didn't fear anything. He nearly came to blows with former teammate Shaquille O'Neal on several occasions despite being five inches shorter and 130 pounds lighter. This was a guy who didn't give a damn. So when Matt Barnes tried to intimidate Bryant with a fake pass to the face, nothing embodied his DGAF attitude more. If you wanted the Black Mamba in GIF form, this was it.
