Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen gets the meme treatment in Trail Blazers' overtime loss to the Warriors

Pity the billionaire.

Paul Allen: Shook.

Paul Allen, one of the co-founders of Microsoft, is also the owner of the Portland Trail Blazers. Last night, he was in the crowd to watch his team lose in overtime to the Golden State Warriors.

Golden State point guard Steph Curry scored a record 17 points in overtime. An ESPN camera caught Allen at an awkward moment. Allen's utter realization of defeat quickly became a meme.

Spare some positive vibes or a prayer for a tech billionaire.

H/T: The half-dozen people on Twitter who correctly called me out for being an idiot, and not immediately recognizing that it was Paul Allen on the screen.
