Last summer, NBA Twitter got a good chuckle out of a back-and-forth between Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum and a Twitter user named Jennifer.
After old quotes from McCollum about never joining superteam were unearthed, Jennifer came at him with the then-hard truth about the Blazers suffering first-round sweeps in back-to-back seasons. McCollum's response became one of NBA Twitter's favorite moments.
Following McCollum's 37-point explosion Sunday in the Blazers' 100-96 win over the Nuggets in Game 7 of their second-round NBA playoff series, Jennifer responded and was prepared for all the shade that was about to come her way ahead of Portland's Western Conference Finals battle with the Warriors.

Portland, its been nice but I’m taking my talents to the Bay! See you there 😎— Jennifer Williams (@ChocDelight1980) May 12, 2019
Despite McCollum and the Blazers' impressive playoff run, Jennifer is still taking the Dubs.
I know y’all waiting on my hot take for the WCF *insert sarcasm for the slowski’s*— Jennifer Williams (@ChocDelight1980) May 13, 2019
Clippers series reminded the Warriors anybody can be beat in the playoffs
Rockets series reminded the Warriors *gasp* they can with my guy KD
I like their chances #DubNation
Now, that's good Twitter.
After defeating the Rockets in Game 6 last Friday, the Warriors have had a few days of much-needed rest while they waited for the Blazers-Nuggets series to be decided. With the status of Kevin Durant (right calf strain) up in the air, the load with fall on Steph Curry to carry the Dubs past McCollum and Damian Lillard to their fifth straight NBA Finals appearance.
