There is style and then there is style.

Exhibit A: Last night’s NBA playoff game between the Portland Trailblazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Game tied with seconds left in a series Portland led three-games-to-one.

Guard Damian Lillard sinks a three-pointer from near half court, then waves “bye bye” to the Oklahoma City bench.

Observe.

Lillard ended his night with 50 points.
