Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons have created a big brother-little brother kind of relationship during their time together with the Portland Trail Blazers. Lillard has become a mentor for Simons and their bond is one of the deepest around the NBA. That's why Lillard was so shocked when he found out Simons had a girlfriend and hadn't told him about it.
Well, at least that's what Dame believed. During an Instagram Live, Lillard talked with Simons about one girl that was with him in Santa Barbara. Anfernee introduced the girl to Lillard and he couldn't help but took offense to it. He was 100% sure he didn't know about this girl and started roasting Simons. It was a hilarious exchange between them, with Lillard asking the 21-year-old why he kept this secret for so long.
