This week, Damian Lillard hit a shot that will go down as one of the most iconic moments in his career. There are those specific landmarks that we look at with great athletes to revisit the times they proved they were above the rest of us. With Michael Jordan, you can use his flu game. Kobe Bryant’s 81-point outing against the Toronto Raptors is also implanted in our memories. For Dame Dolla, his shot to send Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder packing will always be a reminder of just how clutch the Portland guard is. Apparently, Florida-based rapper Lil Pump has the same skills on the court in late-game situations — or at least that’s what he’s claiming — because he just posted a video fo himself making a wild shot off a trampoline bounce, freaking out afterwards.

In reality, there is a very slim chance that the rapper made this shot on his first try. He likely attempted dozens of times before finally landing it. Regardless, it’s still pretty cool that the Harverd Dropout actually sank the dagger. He picked up some nice air before taking his shot and watching it fly into the basket, which was located pretty far away. Once he made the shot, he proclaimed, “In there, bitch! In there, stop fucking playing with me!” In his caption, he compared himself to Damian Lillard.
Who else would pay to see an actual one-on-one battle between Dame Lillard and Lil Pump? Watching Lillard break Pump’s ankles would surely bring joy to many.
