In a packed Western Conference, somebody was going to lose out on making it to the 2015 NBA All-Star roster. This year Portland Trailblazers star Damian Lillard didn’t make the cut. He’s making everyone pay for that.
During the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s home game against the Utah Jazz, Lillard drove through the lane and bashed on 7-2 center Rudy Gobert.
It was just last week that Lillard was calling out the fans, coaches and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver about the snub.
I just want to thank the coaches who feel I wasn’t good enough, the fans that didn’t think I was good enough ,and Adam Silver also for not thinking I was good enough. This isn’t unfamiliar territory for me , it’s actually what my life has been inspired by. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed or that I don’t feel disrespected but it’s not too much to handle. Not the first or last guy to be snubbed. “You should have been there” isn’t good enough for me. But anyway, The reason I’m in these shoes is because I’ve always use the hand I was dealt to my advantage… A wise man once told me… ” it ain’t always gone be peaches and cream but somebody has to pay for the reason it’s not … One way or another “
