Video: Blazers star Damian Lillard’s NSFW message to teammates at bubble birthday party

Damian Lillard, Blazers

Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday inside the Disney World bubble, and he had a pretty strong message to all his teammates in attendance.

Lillard was egged on by his Blazers teammates to make a speech, and his birthday wish was pretty epic:

As it turns out, there are no off days for Lillard — even on his birthday. It appears that it was a fun party, and the All-Star point guard was very appreciative of the effort put in by his teammates to make his celebration special, despite the circumstances. However, it is clear that Lillard has kept his eyes on the prize. It’s all about winning for him, and he made sure to remind the rest of the Blazers exactly why they’re in the bubble in the first place.

Portland entered the hiatus with a 29-37 record. They’re currently ranked ninth in the Western Conference and three and a half games behind the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. It’s not going to be an easy task for the Blazers, but they definitely have a shot at securing that final playoff spot in the West.

For his part, Lillard has been a beast for the Blazers this season. The 30-year-old is averaging a career-best 28.9 points on 45.7 percent shooting (also a career high), along with 4.3 rebounds, and 7.8 assists (another career-best mark). The former Rookie of the Year winner is also knocking down 3.9 triples per contest on a 39.4 percent clip, which are both — yup, you guessed it — also career high for him.
