Damian Lillard admits championship skill Warriors’ Draymond Green had to teach him
Damian Lillard is many things – a loyal franchise face, an All-NBA talent, and one of the greatest scorers in NBA history. But when it comes to winning titles, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green has him beat.
That’s why Damian Lillard wasn’t used to the champagne celebration after Team USA won their gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Check out the adorable scene with the Warriors star giving his Blazers buddy a helping hand.
Lillard was completely candid weeks later on the clip that went viral. He admitted that Draymond, who has three championship rings with the Warriors, had to give him the skinny on popping his first bottle.
Via Public Republic:
“This is what it looks like when you haven’t won a championship. I haven’t won yet & Draymond has won 3…After we won the gold everybody is spraying champagne, I don’t have much experience at it so I needed the champ to assist me.”
Damian Lillard was involved in a number of trade rumors this past offseason, some of which had him headed for the Warriors. But with a new coach in Chauncey Billups, it sounds like Dame is giving it another go with the franchise that drafted him.
