Damian Lillard appears to fire warning shot at Paul George after beef
On Instagram, Lillard fired another shot, which appears to be a warning to George and the Clippers.
The feud restarted on the court on Saturday after Patrick Beverley trolled Damian Lillard following a missed free throw, yelling out “Dame time!”
Following the game during his press conference, Dame sounded off on both Beverley and George.
“Asking me about Patrick Beverley who — I sent him home before at the end of a game,” the Blazers star said. “Paul George just got sent home by me last year in the playoffs. So they know. The reason they reacting like that is because of what they expect from me, which is a sign of respect. It just shows what I’ve done at a higher clip more times than not. I’m not offended by it. If anything it should just tell you how much it hurt them to go through what I’ve put them through in those situations previously.”
George, meanwhile, fired back after hearing about Lillard’s comments, saying that “some people can play when talking, some people can’t.”
Multiple jabs have since occurred on social media between the two, primarily on Instagram like the post above. Whether or not George or Beverley respond is anyone’s guess, but this feud will more than likely have to stay on social media, as this was the last meeting between the the Clippers and Blazers in the regular season.
The only way the feud can continue on the court is if the two teams meet in the conference finals, which is very unlikely.
