Damian Lillard is unarguably one of the most loyal players in the NBA as of now. He was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2012 NBA Draft using the sixth overall pick.
Since then, Dame has only added more weapons to his arsenal and has established himself as one of the best players in his position. But as good as Lillard has been throughout his career, the 32-year-old is yet to win an NBA Championship.
Lillard might be trying to recruit a few stars to come to the Trail Blazers in order to help him win an NBA Championship or at least become a team that can contend for it.
It seems like Lillard's quest to find a good teammate isn't limited to the NBA. In a recent hilarious video, Lillard was seen teaching how to play basketball to renowned rapper Cardi B.
Looking at the clip, it was obvious that Cardi B wasn't able to even handle the ball properly, let alone be good at basketball. But towards the end of the clip, Lillard praised the rapper by saying she did well.
NBA fans were quick to react to the video of Dame trying to teach Cardi B basketball, and they didn't hold back when trolling the latter.
marijuano_del94: Why she flapping at the ball like a seal hahaha.
bucketspot: Dame’s so used to Portland he thought this was good.
eli1on1: Ball handling skills???
erinjones02: Pretty good ball handling skills?? Where?? You can’t be serious.
blameitonaprince: She dribbles like Jared Dudley.
will.agy: She aint no damn hooper, i thought she actually was in da day😂.
mj4birdie: She said “I ain’t used to playing with balls” paused…then said “wait, wait…ahahahaha” 😂😂😂
kingch3cc: Still waiting on the part we’re she handled the ball pretty good.
sanchez071721: The audacity Dame gets to say that's pretty good😂.
imbigant: 😑 i just wanted to see her dribble soon as i saw that shi i 🤦🏽♂️.
devasgarraj: Why she waddling like a duck doe.
It was clear that even the caption of the post was sarcastic, and fans were quick to notice it. They trolled the rapper pretty hard.
Anyway, for Lillard, he probably didn't want to hurt her. That's the most plausible reason for him thinking that Cardi B played well. A bunch of fans also mentioned that the way Cardi talked was pretty annoying.
