Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard is not just a great player on the court; he also proves to be a man of conviction outside the league. Part of that conviction is his perspective towards the ongoing debate between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and who is the best player between the two. Interestingly, the NBA superstar knows how to handle himself in such situations, especially when someone criticizes the King from Cleveland Cavaliers.

Just recently, a fan went to ask Damian Lillard on Twitter regarding his take on Bryant going up against James.

If the two superstars in the league decide to battle each other, he was asked who he thinks will win. Lillard’s response was short but sweet: Kobe.

On people criticizing LeBron James number

Another fan, unfortunately, made a remark on the same thread, iterating that the Cavaliers’ James is “3-5 in the finals.” Obviously, the Trail Blazers guard was not pleased with it and thus he called it out. “A lot of ppl are 0-0,” a smart response from him on the social media site. This just shows that, in one way or another, understands the power and greatness that James has in the league. He simply respects the King.

Damian Lillard is considered as one of the greatest point guards in the NBA, and he still has a lot of years to offer.

Without a doubt, he will go down in history as one of the GOATs (Greatest of All-Time). Interestingly, Lillard is not the type of player who eats his own words outside the league. He continues to inspire people, with his recent comments on James’ basher being an example.

On playing with the Utah Jazz

Apart from the aforementioned, Damian Lillard also went to share his own thoughts about his career and future.

He iterated that if his current team, Portland Trail Blazers, would not want him, he would go play with the Utah Jazz. Of course, this might be a “quick” thought from the superstar, but this is Lillard posting. Somehow, there could be truth to what he just said on Twitter.

Interestingly though, the Jazz has one of the most interesting rosters in the league right now.

They do not have superstars like Kyrie Irving or Stephen Curry, but they manage to dismantle even the strongest of the team in the league. If Damian Lillard is to go play with them, they could be an easy title-contender in their division.

Utah’s front office will simply have to find a way to make it possible if the Trail Blazer really intends to do so. This change will certainly impact the team balance in the league.
