It was the meme of the summer for NBA Twitter.

A few months previously, Portland had swept out of the playoffs, and during an interview the Blazers CJ McCollum was asked if he would join an established winner to chase wins and a ring, and he said he wouldn’t.

Which prompted this Twitter exchange, which went viral.

Portland did get a series win, and Jennifer — her name is Jennifer Williams, she’s actually a Warriors fan — took credit.

Before Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals Thursday, CJ got to meet Williams.

McCollum has done more than try these playoffs, he’s looked fantastic and is a reason the Blazers are here in the conference finals.
