It was just earlier on Monday that Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry casually hit a three from well beyond halfcourt.
While not necessarily at that level, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers just did his own Curry impersonation.
What stands out here is the fact that Lillard nailed the shot from the Portland logo while in the midst of a half-court set.

That’s just ridiculous right there. It’s rather obvious that the NBA game is changing by the minute.
This would’ve been seen as a stupid shot and probably would have landed a player on the bench just a few years back.
Instead, Lillard nails the shot with ease. Welcome to the new NBA, ladies and gents.
