Damian Lillard and Shaquille O’Neal had a friendly rap battle back in October. Now, the two legends have decided to work together to create the best music possible.
Both Shaq and Dame are very free these days, with the NBA season suspended due to COVID-19.
Before the 2019-20 season got suspended, Lillard was averaging 28.9 points per game for the Blazers. He was also shooting 45.7 percent from the floor, 39.4 percent from beyond the arc, and 88.8 percent from the free-throw line.
Dame had two 60-point games on the season for the Blazers and scored at least 50 points four times as well. The All-Star point guard continues to establish himself as one of the best scorers in NBA history.
NBA owners are hopeful of resuming the 2019-20 season in the summer if the virus dies down and the CDC deems it safe for large gatherings to take place again.
The Blazers only had a record of 29-37 prior to play being suspended. After reaching the Western Conference Finals last season, Portland, for whatever reason, has been inconsistent in 2019-20 despite Lillard’s stellar numbers.
