The NBA has been the king of social media, embracing platforms and allowing its users access to hours of content. Naturally, the geniuses of the Internet ran with it, creating reaction GIFs that have become some of the most often used images on the web. Many were considered, but only eight made it to the ultimate bracket to determine the best of them all. Which NBA GIF rules them all?

#PrematureNick

Nothing says, "Close, but not close enough" quite like Nick Young's prematurely celebrated three-pointer. Did someone on Twitter try and fail to secure a DM from an attractive user? Send them this to let them know they took their shot—and failed.

#NoFlinchBryant

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.
