CJ’s trying, Jennifer

On August 15, 2018, one Jennifer Williams tweeted at CJ McCollum, imploring the Blazer guard to “Win a playoff game then talk.”

A few hours later, McCollum had a succinct response: “Im Trying Jennifer.”

Since, McCollum and his team have won eight playoff games, and almost won another last night.

With that surely in mind, the cast of ESPN’s The Jump brought Jennifer, who now has a few thousand Twitter followers and a blog, on its live set in Oakland last night, and the two antagonists finally met in person. The whole exchange was adorable.

According to the Washington Post, Jennifer is a 38-year-old mother of four who bandwagoned the Warriors during this recent string of titles. Her Tweet was a response to all of McCollum's perceived Golden State hate:

“In the past, I had seen different things about CJ saying stuff about the Warriors having a super stacked team, so when that tweet came up, I was just like, ‘I’m tired of this guy saying stuff and they haven’t even won a freakin’ playoff game.’”
