The date was April 23rd, 2019.
On that night, Damian Lillard dropped a 50 piece on the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
The game is best known for what happened at the final buzzer. That is when Lillard launched what is now known as the "Bad Shot."
Lillard rose up from the Moda Center logo, launched a shot over the outstretched arm of Paul George, and sent OKC home.
The result was the Thunder hitting the reset button in the offseason.
They traded Paul George to the LA Clippers, and the face of the franchise Russell Westbrook was sent to Houston.
A year later, OKC fans are still salty.
Dame wanted no parts of Russ in the playoffs last year lmfao pic.twitter.com/OeB7G11ERT— PAT BEV TRICK YALL MAN (@TripleRussell0) March 28, 2020
"PAT BEV TRICK YALL MAN," if that is his real name, is definitely a Westbrook Stan.
What gives it away? Maybe it's the @TripleRussell0 handle, or the Westbrook avatar, or maybe it's the Westbrook banner. We can't quite put our finger on it.
Regardless, Rip City saw the tweet and was more than a little perplexed.
We're all bored, but this take is too much. From that series:— Joe Simons (@joesimonssays) March 29, 2020

This really is the dumbest tweet of 2020.— Eric Ringering (@ringering45) March 29, 2020
It’s cool you found the highlights from the one game the Thunder won in that series. https://t.co/iu6ngPzTdD
Watch game 5 again... I dare you. Dame had 19 of the Blazers’ 29 in the first quarter no one else could do anything and Dame was making through doubles. Westbrook played that whole 1st quarter. Dame ended 50 points 17-33, Russ was 11-31.— Christian Gmelin (@ChristianGmelon) March 29, 2020
Russ is incredible, but come on. pic.twitter.com/TThJSZb191— Jared Cowley (@jaredcowley) March 29, 2020

Might as well join the long list right? pic.twitter.com/7OXRNaBv7H— adam (@AirDavante) March 29, 2020
After dispatching the Thunder, Portland went on to play in its first Western Conference Finals in nearly 20 years.
It seems like wanting no part of Westbrook worked out pretty well for Lillard.
