Apologies for the off week everyone, but to be honest, it didn’t seem fair to have to make anything go up for a vote against Elliot Avent’s incredible spin move, which might be some of the greatest use of the B button (or circle button for you Playstation folks) I’ve ever seen. Goes without saying that’s going to get immediate entry into the next tournament of champions.

Anyways, moving on to this week, it’s still been pretty quiet around the #goacc front, much quieter than previous "offseasons" anyway. However, we’ve got a handful of hilarious entries for you to vote on, as always. We’ve also got some hilarious photoshops, a #suregrin winner that got savagely owned on Twitter, and some wisdom from the world of wrasslin’. Let’s get right down to it, folks. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Amile Jefferson sleeps with a blanket made of Marshall Plumlee childhood photos (h/t @marshallplumlee40)

This legit might be one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen, but I’m not going to lie it is hilarious.

2. Paul Johnson’s spending the offseason hustlin’ the pool table.

Look at Paul Johnson’s expression here. It’s absolutely quintessential Paul Johnson. It’s one of "yeah, these kids have zero chance."

3. One of Miami's assistants got a bit weird in explaining why he should be hired onto the staff (h/t @caneshoops).

I have a lot of questions here. Did he actual heart? Did he have to go Temple of Doom on someone to get it? Because if so, that’s a bit extreme. Just saying.

4. A moron on Twitter tried to challenge former BC player Jared Dudley to a 1 on 1 game, and got destroyed before the game even happened (h/t @BleacherReport).

I hope this does happen, because holy hell that would make for some entertaining content on Twitter dot com. Hopefully someone could then photoshop an #eggavi onto the unfortunate soul after he gets dunked on by Dudley.

5. Apparently Iman Shumpert and Kyrie Irving have damn good singing voices (h/t @keytothecityy)

This video is a bit older, but saw it pop into my timeline on Twitter this week and had to include it. I mean...that’s pretty damn good, right? Of course, some hot take artists will probably blame the Cavs’ eventual series loss to the Warriors on this. Hell, that’s why Fox Sports 1 has a show featuring Cowherd, Whitlock and Jason McIntyre, right?

the #suregrin award.

If you’re like me, you probably enjoy the hell out of Game of Thrones on HBO. It’s truly amazing how this is one of the few shows around that everyone still insists they watch "live," meaning precisely when the show airs. Nowadays, with DVR and on-demand channels and apps, anyone can watch just about anything at any time, yet still Game of Thrones is sort of an event each week. Naturally, this causes some on Twitter to get real, REAL angry when spoilers get posted. If you’re one of those who hasn't seen any of this current season, skip down to the Jim Ross Moment of the Week!

Well, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show, took to Twitter to celebrate her character’s plan to finally return home. This upset a particular person on Twitter for "spoiling" this fact, and he decided to voice his displeasure. He should’ve probably stayed silent:

That dude got owned harder than Ser Meryn Trant.

The best photoshops of the week!

First, we’ll start with the great GIF that SB Nation created that brilliantly sums up how Draymond Green will return in game 6:

I’m not gonna lie, they made this way better than I ever could. That is just spectacular.

Next, the Twitter legend Uncle Chaps (seriously follow him right now) best summed up the end of Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode:

When even Jaqen H’ghar gets Crying Jordan’d, nobody is safe.

Finally, we have to talk about Steph Curry’s trash shoes. I mean, those shoes are terrible. If you’ve been living under a rock, Under Armour came out with some new Steph Curry shoes that are the most Dad shoes of all time. Well, I felt like there was only one way to photoshop them:

I’m also really hoping that these shoes become the new Crying Jordan, as was demonstrated here:

But for real though..........the shoes are trash.

And now, for your moment of wrasslin...


This week’s wrasslin’ wisdom comes from the world of baseball, where the Royals and the Orioles had a bit of a dust up:

Have a great rest of the week everyone!
