This vine from Monday night’s demolition of the Cavaliers at the hands of the Warriors needs to be played on loop in a museum. 

This vine is a microcosm of this NBA season, in which all of LeBron James’s singular talents are not enough to match up with teams on the level of Golden State and San Antonio.

This vine is a metaphorical passing of the torch, or more truthfully a stealing of the torch, as Stephen Curry snatches away LeBron’s title as the best player on Earth.

This vine is perfect.
