TCR GIF Tournament: Championship

We’re down the two best Illni GIFs, as voted by TCR readers.

Over the last two weeks we gathered some of the best Illinois GIFs on the internet and asked the readers of TCR to weigh in. We’ve reached the championship matchup after working through our four regions that included the Coach Region, the Game Region, the Players Region and the Miscellaneous Region.

Let’s get to our two finalists:

Malcolm Kisses the Floor

This GIF captures one of the happier and more emotional moments during the last five years of Illinois Basketball. Malcolm nearly carried the Illini to his first NCAA Tournament after four years of grueling work. Between this GIF and his BTN postgame interview, you can see the special connection Malcolm had with the school and Illini fans everywhere.

Malcolm defeated the Gonzaga walk on playing air guitar, IMar’s jersey pop, Jonathon Brown’s nutshot on a Northwestern player, and Tim Beckman intently listening to a question at B1G media day.

Griffey For The Win

It’s crazy to think that this highlight could be the best moment of the 2010s for Illinois Basketball, but that looks to be fairly likely at this point. I was in the building for this game and it was easily the coolest Illini moment I’ve seen live.

Griffey agrees.

Obviously, Illini fans hold this memory near and dear to their hearts as it beat BP3’s dunk over Minnesota, a Mikey Dudek Juke, an Illini player throwing a flag at a referee and Lee Corso donning Illini headgear on its way to the championship game.
