Former Miami Heat and retired NBA player Tim Hardaway Sr. became an Internet sensation for future gifs or memes on Tuesday night.

It comes from the expressionless reaction from Hardaway Sr. when his son, Tim Hardaway Jr., dropped a first-half buzzer beater for the New York Knicks against the Detroit Pistons.

Here’s the reaction, which has been seen more than 40,100 times on Twitter:

Hardaway Sr. was an assistant with the Pistons the past four seasons under Stan Van Gundy, but was let go after Van Gundy was fired. Hardaway Sr.’s son played for Michigan, and the Detroit News reports Hardaway Sr. still has a home in Detroit.

Hardaway Sr. joined the Heat during the 1995-96 season and played in Miami through the 2000-01 season.
