The 20 Best Gorguis Of All-Time

Andy Lyons

As we prepare to officially send both Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva off to some lucky new fan bases, I think it's only right that we look back at some of our fondest memories of both. We start with Gorgui and a post that needs to be updated with National Championship Gorgs.

Try and smile because it happened and not sob like a three-month old alone and terrified because it's over.

20. Cast Gorgui

It was no laughing matter at the time, but somehow Gorgui managed to make it look cool. I still havent ruled out wearing a wrap on my left wrist during the postseason.

19. Pumpkin Gorgui

First step pumpkin, next step statue.

18. Ladies Man Gorgui

My sister's taken, but I'm still trying to figure out a way for Gorgui to marry into my family. Hopefully he'll wait for one of my 27 daughters to turn 18.

17. Soccer Gorgui

True athlete.

16. Hide-And-Go-Seek Gorgui

Not his best game.

15. Clubbing Gorgui

We all know Gorgui's a laid back dude, but when he does go out he's rolling with silk shirts and NBA All-Stars. That's what Gorgui does.

14. Snow Gorgui

Yes, the news­pa­pers were right: snow was gen­eral all over Louisville. It was falling softly upon the KFC Yum Center and, fur­ther west­wards, softly falling into the dark muti­nous Ohio River waves. It was falling too upon every part of the lonely arena where Gorgui Dieng's college career lay buried. It lay thickly drifted on the Final Four ring and the single-season blocked shot record. His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the uni­verse and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the liv­ing and the dead.

Snow Gorgui actually wrote that.

Snow Gorgui didn't write that.

13. Baby Gorgui

An Internet treasure and one of the most successful game thread images of the 2012 Cardinal football season.

12. Point Guard Gorgui

Not seen often, but when he does, he certainly makes an impression. His most notable appearance came, appropriately enough, during the final 20 seconds of what would prove to be the final DePaul Day.

*Walks into the shower. Turns on cold water.*

GORGUI LEFT ME FOR A BETTER LEAGUE. DEPAUL DAY LEFT ME FOR A BETTER CONFERENCE. EVERYBODY LEAVES ME...What is wrong with me?

I'm Ok. Let's just keep going.

11. Checking Dwight Howard Gorgui

Give it a few years and it might be "Matches Up Favorably Woth Dwight Howard Gorgui."

10. Neck Brace Gorgui

From DePaul Day I 2012.

*Don't flip out again*

This was one of the bottom five Gorguis when it happened, but let's be real, it's kind of hilarious now. Gorgui shows up to the AllState Arena in a neckbrace, plays (and plays pretty well) in the game, then dons the brace once ore for the postgame interviews.

9. Panelist Gorgui

I sat like this during the entire discussion. Seriously Louisville's most interesting man.

8. You Mad? Gorgui

That's a clown question, bro (Gorgui voice).

7. Fist Bumping Gorgui

Gorgbump_medium

Because he likes Chane. Chane is very cool.

6. Lion Chasing Gorgui


"Gorgui what do you miss most about home?'

"Probably the food...and chasing lions."

5. Beanie Baby Gorgui

You may have heard that they found a cure for AIDS earlier this week. It was this picture.

4. Intertube Gorgui

Gorgs just wants to have fun. That's all he really wants. Is some fun.

3. Babysitting Gorgui

If there's been a better picture in the history of ever then I'd like to see it, and then I'd like to punch you in the jaw for foolishly showing it to me because it's not even close to being as remarkable as this one.

2. Can't Control His Laughter Gorgui

Still the best GIF of all-time.

And finally...

1. Beach Gorgui

Pretty much the Gorgui that started it all, and the only one who can rightfully claim the top spot.

There are about 85 more Gorguis out there (Hipster Gorgui, anyone?), so feel free to share the snubs in the comments.
