His"WTF just happened?" response was pretty priceless, I must say. If you check out the article some of the tweets are hilarious.

Microsoft cofounder and Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen is now officially an internet meme.

In Game 4 of the Trail Blazers' playoff series against the Golden State Warriors, Allen was caught by sideline cameras as he watched the reigning NBA MVP Steph Curry single-handedly dismantle his team in the closing minutes of overtime.

Curry scored 17 of his 40 points in that final five-minute overtime frame that's the most points scored by any single player in a playoff overtime period ever. He sealed the deal with a couple of signature, long-distance three-pointers in the clutch, and Allen, the owner of the Trail Blazers, was caught with his mouth agape.

Of course, the internet immediately ate it up.

In case you're unfamiliar with the Crying Jordan meme, it was borne out of Michael Jordan's Hall of Fame speech in 2009 and it's frequently used by sports fans to show that feeling when you lose or your team loses. For example, people put the Crying Jordan meme on Cam Newton's face when he lost in this year's Super Bowl.

Of course someone has already taken Paul Allen's meme to the next level by combining it with Jordan's meme.
