If you were watching, it’s one of those sports moments you’ll always remember.
I still cannot look at the video of Damian Lillard’s amazing three point shot without getting chills. It’s that powerful for anyone who is a Blazer fan.
And if you watched the series between the Trail Blazers and Rockets it was the biggest “cardiac moment” of the entire series and that is really saying something given all the overtime games!
But it was more than that. This was the Blazers shot heard around the world on social media.
The epicenter, no doubt, was Portland’s Moda Center. Where Damian Lillard even grabbed the announcer’s mic to celebrate with the crowd!
Meanwhile, outside, TV reporter Joel Iwanaga tweeted a selfie before his live shot, with a celebrating crowd behind him!
And social media guru Gunnar Simonsen used Instagram to have some fun with the Blazer victory!
And now, to the around the world part. Long after the game was over–I still could not sleep and I was on Twitter (on my phone) celebrating with Blazer fans everywhere. And that’s when I decided to check the “Trending” lists.
In other words, in a given part of the world, which words are being used in a Tweet most often. The most popular are at the top of each list. And above that is where the words are Trending. List number one is Portland, which was all about the series, the shot and the moment. Awesome, right?
Now, check out what was trending around the North American continent–and other parts of the world. This is so amazing!
Isn’t this amazing? I’m so proud of our Blazers for fighting all the way to victory! And if you missed the magic moment, here is the video:
