Dwyane Wade's Stalled Layup Triggers the 'Crying Jordan' Moment of Heat-Raptors Series

Thank you, internet.

The Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors has been the perfect storm of sloppiness and nail-biting to keep basketball Twitter engaged. In Monday's Game 4, an imperfect layup late in overtime by Heat guard Dwyane Wade perfectly encapsulated the series and gave us the "internet moment" we've been waiting for.

Wade's shot, obviously, got the Crying Jordan + Drake treatment.

Looks like the basketball gods responded to Wade for the disrespect he showed toward the Canadian anthem. Or something like that.

The ugliness that this series has been continues Wednesday for Game 5, when one team will inch a step closer to getting swept by LeBron and the Cavs.
