Portland Trail Blazers rookies Meyers Leonard and Damian Lillard take a photo of teammate Luke Babbitt while he's sleeping on the team plane.

Looks like the Portland Trail Blazers had a fun flight to Utah in advance of the preseason finale against the Jazz on Thursday.

Last season, and over the summer with Team USA, a "#GotEm" trend swept Twitter. It's an extremely complicated concept that I'm not sure I can fully explain, but basically you take a photograph of someone sleeping on a team plane or bus and then plaster it on social media to shame them.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews tweeted this photo of teammate Luke Babbitt sleeping while rookies Meyers Leonard and Damian Lillard cheese in the background. Leonard is wearing a Captain America mask to complete the scene.

Below, check out a picture of Lillard with a Barbie doll, which is presumably a part of his rookie hazing/orientation.
