Damian Lillard had some words to say about Utah Jazz superstar Donovan Mitchell’s Game 5 outfit. Yup, we’re talking about clothes here.
The Portland Trail Blazers star, who’s already out of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, took to Twitter to blast Mitchell’s pre-game drip. As it seems, Dame wasn’t a fan of Mitchell’s floral ensemble ahead of the pivotal Game 5 against the Los Angeles Clippers (h/t to B/R Kicks):

If you ask me, Spida’s drip was actually quite fresh. There aren’t a lot of people with enough confidence and swagger to pull off such a delicate style and Mitchell definitely rocked this one. He could’ve probably gone with a different undershirt though – just saying.
The 24-year-old superstar has been known to be quite a provocateur when it comes to his fashion sense. But, what’s even better is how he’s been able to let his game do the talking, especially in the playoffs. In his fourth post-season stint, Mitchell has developed into a bonafide superstar which has been huge for the Utah franchise.
In the first two rounds of the 2021 Playoffs, Mitchell’s game has been as loud as his game day drip. After eight games so far, the two-time All-Star has been averaging 32.9 points per game while knocking down 4.6 threes per outing. And, more importantly, the Jazz have won six of those eight games with their starting swingman absolutely balling out.
Seeing all these numbers and the way Spida has been stamping his class in the playoffs, perhaps Dame can let this one go.
