Chris Paul has a simple explanation for the highly GIF-able 2018 moment when he fake laughed at Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

“Cause wasn’t s--- funny,” Paul said.

It happened on Jan. 20, 2018, when Paul was playing for the Houston Rockets and has turned into a popular meme. The Rockets were stymied by the Warriors consistently in the playoffs, including in the 2018 Western Conference finals and the second round of the 2019 postseason.

Paul, 34, was traded to the Thunder (40-24) in the offseason for Russell Westbrook. The meme, of course, lives on. He averaged 17.7 points, 6.8 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 63 games this season. The Warriors were already eliminated from postseason contention when the league went on hiatus.
