24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The NBA is loaded with some dramatic stories this season, but not many are as exciting as Damian Lillard’s. A snub his whole career, Lillard was the victim of one of the most severe snubs of his career as he was held back from the 2016 NBA All-Star Game this past week, in what has been a career-year for the Oakland native.
His response? A track called ‘They Sleep’ in which Lillard addresses the situation in a pretty lyrical way. His other response? Dropping a career-high 51 points on what may just be the best team in NBA history in the Warriors and on Steph Curry, who is considered the best player in the world and the best at their position.
Lillard hit 9 threes in this game and had 7 assists and 6 steals to go with the career scoring night which led his Blazers to a 32-point win over the defending champions.
The Warriors open the second half of their season with a loss at the hands of an angry and hungry Lillard.
