- Prior to a monster performance against the Sixers on Sunday, in which he scored 37 points, LeBron James became the unwitting star of a new meme that is likely to run and run.

While warming up with his Cavs teammates, he got hit in the face with an errant pass, the impact knocking him to the ground.

Sure, people were concerned for his health, but mostly they used vines and GIFs of the moment to describe how school, college, exams and Monday morning were going to hit them.

Championship rings, MVP awards, now a meme. LeBron has finally made it.
