There was an “NBA” game tonight between the Golden State Warriors and “Los Angeles Lakers.” Golden State jumped out to an early double-digit lead and never looked back, winning with a final score of 108-90.

More importantly than the outcome, though, was that this happened:

Sure, I could try to put together a few hundred words about the game itself and comment on who played well or whatever, but why do that when there is this glorious play to break down.

Let’s take a closer look at Big Balder Brand earning some national exposure.

Jemerrio Jones had maybe the most vitriolic response, as he immediately shat himself on the sidelines:

Let’s look at LeBron James’ reaction:

When you find out Caruso made like 1/20th as much as Rajon Rondo this year.

Next up on the list, Kyle Kuzma, who took a break from helping James with his accessorizing to celebrate Caruso’s big moment.

Kuzma looks like he just found out Caruso was given his spot in “Space Jam 2.” Life comes at you fast.

Kevin Durant had a firsthand look at Caruso’s dunk, and gave him a stare down as a result of his proximity to the play.

He’s still standing there.

What’s really funny here is that as per league rules, Durant had to retire immediately. The the New York Knicks miss out again. Such a shame.

Tyson Chandler, had the proudest dad moment of all proud dad moments of all time and, as a future father myself, I can only hope to reach this level of dad-ness.

Lastly, Isaac Bonga had the purest moment of anyone, with a smile that could light up even these dark Lakers days:

Shouts to Caruso for providing us with such an incredible moment. The game was barely watchable otherwise but the jokes that came out of this play made it almost worth it.

This loss moved the Lakers (35-44) into sole possession of the 10th-best lottery odds in the NBA, and they’re right back at it tomorrow night against the Clippers. Here’s hoping it provides something close to as as fun as this moment.
