Ahh, good ol' memes, the bread and butter of the Internet.
You know, even though memes are just pictures with captions on them, they can actually exist in any form of media.
Just ask Wikipedia, which as we know, is the most reliable source for anything.
Anyway, when it comes to producing the best memes, no sport tops the NBA.
There's a basketball meme to describe practically every feeling you ever have, even during your relationship.
And for the ladies who want to know how their relationship with "bae" feels from his perspective, worry not. Elite Daily's got you.
