The Utah Jazz have gone Viral for the first time since 2020 when Rudy Gobert touched a bunch of recorders during a media conference.

The 4-year hiatus that catapults the Jazz back into the limelight, once again, doesn’t necessarily put the Jazz or its players in on the winning side of the recognition.

The newfound social media fame has very little to do with the Jazz falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, 114-104.

It has nothing to do with the return of Lauri Markkanen and his 22 points, or Keyonte George’s 15 points on 50 percent shooting while dishing 8 assists.

No one’s looking at the electric play of Collin Sexton coming off a 24-point outing with 5 triples or Taylor Hendricks flashing his versatility.

There’s nothing to do with the Jazz, despite struggling, finally playing the youth fully and watching them show out and play tough against a top NBA squad.

There is however a new major focus on Jazz forward, John Collins.

Collins had 11 points and 6 rebounds in the Utah loss, and above all, was on the receiving end of one of the nastiest dunks in NBA history.

Anthony Edwards blew fans away with one of the nastiest rim rockers the league has ever witnessed, and in doing so, obliterated Collins out of existence.

If being sent to the depths of the shadow realm wasn’t enough, the dunkee is just as big as a topic as the dunker after the mayhem.

When a dunk like this occurs, the masses break it into four categories: Coverage, Reaction, Unique Angles, and Humor.

I got you covered with a social media taste of all four right here in remembrance of John Collins.


This is people legitimately doing their best to cover a slam so bonkers, that when they present information and facts in a professional way it comes off sarcastic with an undermining tone, making it all the better.


Sure, you can watch anyone with a phone record their reaction, or anyone with a platform:

Regardless, the best clips are of those involved in the play or on the scene themselves.

No doubt, Mike Conley and Nickeil Alexander-Walker were a-ok with this happening in Salt Lake City.

We miss you, Mike.


In today’s age, someone in an entirely different spot was recording at the moment it happened, scour the web find the unique angle, witness it with renewed awe;



And what would a great play be without Memes?

That’s right, it wouldn’t be a great play, because any play that’s great is worth its weight in memes.

John Collins, we love you, we support you, and we would stand with you, but we don’t want to get dunked on. So, we will continue to cheer from the sidelines.
