Damian Lillard didn’t get selected to play in the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, and he was not happy about it. He was actually so unhappy about getting snubbed that he rapped about it on his latest song, “They Sleep.” Listen here:
"Let me holler at ya'll about a few things quick/I'm as humble as they come but my shoe game lit," he raps on the song. "I didn't make the All-Stars but I'm Flu Game sick/Last time they count me out, what I do? Game 6."
And guess what? Lillard's got a right to feel wronged. He clearly deserved a spot on the All-Star roster. Just check out his stat line from the Trail Blazers game against the Warriors tonight:
- 51 points
- 7 assists
- 6 steals
- 0 turnovers
Oh, and it wasn't just some great performance in a blowout loss, either. In fact, it was the exact opposite of that. Portland beat Steph Curry and Golden State by a final score of 137-105 (no, that isn't a typo...). And Lillard was so good during the game that Warriors coach Steve Kerr had this to say about him after the game ended:
Yeah, he was that good:
Here’s what Lillard had to say after the game was over:
Something tells us the Warriors will be just fine, despite losing by 32 tonight. But damn, Dame. Damn. Point taken.
