All-NBA Meme Team: Putting Together the Most Fun, Effective Basketball Team

Part of the reason that basketball has become such a popular sport in the world is the access to players that far eclipses that of other sports.

In the NBA you've got a dozen guys on each team that are literally within arms reach of fans during games, they wear no more than a jersey and shorts and they are constantly in the public view, usually easy to spot because of how tall they are.

Meanwhile, it's harder to recognize a football or baseball player without a helmet and jersey on unless they are one of the most popular players in their respective league. There just doesn't seem to be as much connection between the fans and the players.

What other leagues lack is exactly what makes the NBA entertaining on a different level than the NFL or MLB. Personalities shine through and we get to know pretty quickly whether a certain player is a goofball. When we do find ourselves a goofball, he usually becomes a fan favorite or a train wreck, depending on the course he takes.

So, in order to give a little love to the league's weird, strange and downright goofy, I've put together the All-NBA Meme Team, giving recognition to the unique combination of skill on the basketball court and over-the-top personality.
