Damian Lillard has revealed his real feelings about Russell Westbrook. Ever since they clashed in the Western Conference playoffs in 2019, people have been talking about Dame's relationship with Westbrook, thinking that they hate each other when the case is different.
Lillard was recently talking about Versus rap battles on Twitter when somebody told him he should rap battle Westbrook, which led Dame to addressed his relationship with Russ.
"I fw Russ... y’all just created some hate between us 🤷🏽♂️"
This has been a good story around the league for quite some time now, but it's just something that was gotten out of proportion. Lillard and Westbrook are extremely competitive players and whenever they step on the court, they will try to beat their rivals, using their game and mind games. In recent times, Lillard has been the winner in their personal duels, but Russ is ready to come back and say something different.
The Blazers are having a terrific offseason, landing Robert Covington and Enes Kanter to bolster their ranks. Now the challenge will be harder for them; the expectations are higher now and Dame will try to lead his team to the promised land.
As for Russ, he's still trying to find a new team in the league after requesting a trade.
