Lillard, the Portland Trailblazers’ star player is someone that carried the burden of the entire team on his shoulder, and brought his team to a comparatively better position than they were in his absence, therefore becoming one of the biggest names in the league coming from a team which isn’t probably one of the most highly discussed NBA teams.

The singer from BTS is someone who had been spotted watching various games, but these were the games of the “big” teams like the Los Angeles Clippers or the Los Angeles Lakers. In reaction to his following of basketball, the singer stated that though he went to the games of these big teams, he like the “underdog” teams like the Portland Trailblazers and players like Lillard more than the big names in the NBA.

In reaction to the singer’s comments, Lillard put out a video of appreciation on Instagram, where he said that he got the chance to see the singer’s article as it was sent to him by someone and followed it up by saying that he really appreciated the latter’s words and he takes it seriously when someone calls him their favourite player and his team their favourite team, which is something that is really important to him. Dame also stated that being a part of the underdog status was to understand that not many people accepted his views but when someone like the singer spreads love then it means a lot to him.

Lillard needed by stating that he couldn’t wait to meet Suga soon highlighting that something big could happen between both the people.
