Two Brothers Claim They Were Assaulted By Members of Damian Lillard's Entourage for Taking Photo of NBA StarJaime Valdez/USA TODAY Sports

Jermaine and Philemon Ulinwa are claiming that Damian Lillard's entourage beat up the two brothers over a picture taken of the 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year after he headed toward a parking lot around 2:30 A.M. Saturday morning in Portland. Below, we have an account from one of the brothers:

“And his entourage just turned around too and they’re like ‘Did you just take a picture of Damian Lillard?’ And I was like … ‘Yeah, I did.’ And so I saw that he was clearly upset, they were upset and I was like, ‘Can I apologize to him? Like I’ll go up right now and apologize to him,’” the brother said.

Within minutes, he says the discussion became an all-out fight which did not involve Lillard but did involve others that the brothers believe were part of Lillard’s group. When the second brother stepped in to help his brother, he says he was punched and kicked repeatedly, enough to break his nose and require stitches in his lip."

According to the Portland Police, Lillard is not a suspect and there is uncertainty whether the individuals involved are even associated with the point guard.
