Raptors coach Jamaal Magloire yelling with cup becomes meme
The sight of Jamaal Magloire yelling out of a cup during the NBA Finals went viral online and became an instant meme.
Magloire, a Toronto Raptors assistant coach, was shown by ABC/ESPN late in the first quarter of Game 6 using a paper cup with a hole poked in it as a megaphone. Fans watching online loved it and then turned it into a meme.
Take a look at some of the funny posts that were inspired by Magloire’s megaphone:

I’m not sure what’s better: Magloire using the cup to communicate, or how quickly the internet fell in love with it and turned it into a meme. Probably the latter.
