Happy 21st Birthday, Ant! 

The Portland Trail Blazers along with its players and fans have been wishing shooting guard Anfernee Simons a very happy birthday on social media.

Before play was suspended in March, Simons was averaging 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 21.5 minutes per game.

The Trail Blazers also shared a highlight reel of Simons. And don't worry, there's plenty of "how did he do that" dunks in this video.

His teammates also showered him with love on Twitter and Instagram.

But the winner for best birthday post (or at least funniest post) goes to Jusuf Nurkic.

Simons may be in his second season in the league, but that doesn't matter to the Bosnian Beast. Simons realizes that he will most likely continue to be a rookie in Nurk's eyes, at least for a few more years.

Trail Blazers fans showed their appreciation for the young guard by tweeting out Happy Birthday wishes along with some of the best Simons GIFs.

From all of us at NBC Sports Northwest, Happy Birthday Ant!
