Brian Windhorst Sets The Stage On What Went Down During His Viral Meme On "First Take"

On today's Pardon My Take... BRIAN WINDHORST! The legendary NBA reporter for ESPN joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter live from Miami to break down the 2023 NBA Finals, his journalism career, LeBron James, and much more. 

The guys also got into it regarding Windhorst's viral meme regarding his segment on ESPN's "First Take" last summer. For those who are unfamiliar with this clip, here you go...

And on today's show, Windhorst broke down each and every moment of this clip...

Here is a bullet point summary of what he said on today's PMT:

- It was the Friday of July 4th weekend, most of ESPN was on vacation

- Windhorst had 20 minutes to talk NBA on First Take's A-block (One of ESPN's highest rated shows)

- He knew something funky was going on with the Jazz. Had heard Gobert was going to get traded, but not 100% sure

- The Jazz traded Gobert 2 hours after the segment, so it made Windhorst look good

- Since it was a holiday weekend, there was no new content besides the meme of Windhorst putting his fingers up

And still, to this day, it remains one of the more "memeable" pictures out there. We even got a screen grab of Windhorst doing it with Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter on PMT…
