The Crying Jordan meme will not die, making yet another appearance in this week's NBA Social Media Rankings.

Welcome back to The Crossover’s weekly social media power rankings, where we determine who won the week off the court. The sixth week of the NBA season gave us a postponed game in Philly, leading to several different storylines, an alter-ego and a super-strange mask. We'll rank performances from best to worst. Here’s how the week shook out:

1. Isiah Thomas

Oh man, Zeke is an instant legend for this one. There's no better way to get back at MJ and win this long-standing beef.

Side note: Can you believe it? Two straight weeks with a Crying Jordan reference? Just when you thought the meme was dead.

2. DeMarcus Cousins

Highest-paid mopper in the league! Have to love Boogie’s dedication to making the floor in Philly game ready. They wound up postponing the game, which turned out to be a big win in the end anyway, as you’ll see…

3. Matt Barnes

Yeah, Barnes and Boogie had a wild night. No night has gone south after the consumption of cheesesteak and Henny.

4. God Pipegod

J.R. Smith revealed an alter-ego but didn't divulge its name. I’m calling it "God Pipegod." This footage is pretty spectacular, and it came after Swish dapped up Jason Terry during the game, allowing his man to score.

5. Joel Embiid

Should the NBA investigate the Sixers for tanking after this tweet?

6. Klay Thompson


Pretty impressive paper airplane, Klay. A more advanced model than most of us can make. What was that, four folds?

7. Cleveland Cavaliers

They had a blast at the game of the year in College Football.

What in God’s name is this?

Whoops. Jumped the gun.
