LeBron James has been on an absolute tear throughout the Eastern Conference semifinals. During Game 2 against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, LeBron went off for 43 points, 14 assists and 8 rebounds. That dominance led to a brilliant comment from ESPN’s Mark Jones which turned into the latest internet meme.
“We’ll be right back to LeBronto after this,” Jones said on-air.
Immediately the memes began flying with everyone giving their take on the new king of Toronto — sorry, Drake.
From incredible photoshops to the repurposing of old memes and shots at Drake, there were some gems that surfaced on social media as the Cleveland Cavaliers went on to take a 2-0 series lead.

Next up for the Cavaliers and Raptors is Game 3 in Cleveland on Saturday night. Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC. If the Cavs earn another big win, they will be one victory away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals where they would take on the winner of the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics series.
In the Western Conference, things are down to the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets, and Utah Jazz.
