            sorry westbrook is better. better dunker, better passer, better rebounder. Lilliard is better at shooting and he is more effecient though.

                  Everytime Paul pierce says “that’s easy” I picture him saying that Russell and Damian would be better with Lebron or Shaq at 24 😂😂😂😂😂😂

                      Idk why but I feel like these guys actually like each other😂😂. I think Russ just talks trash and doesn’t make friends on the court and Lillard has no choice but to respond because he’s a competitor. I always thought of Lillard as Portland’s Westbrook just a better shooter and smaller, and Westbrook bigger and more athletic (though they’re both great athletes) but not as great a shooter. And these guys obviously aren’t the same height, idk who measured them but they’re not both 6’3, I think Lillard is 6’2.25 or 6’2.5 and Westbrook is 6’3.5 6’4, maybe even close to 6’5.

                        Give lillard KD, Harden Ibaka or PG13 and they're winning a ring.

                            Its funny how these retards on television always confuse competition to borderline grudge/hate... Listen bitch, The FAKE, Jalen "81" Rose, competitiveness is what you show on the court, its the whatever it takes mentality, youre dumb as rock if you think the only way to show competitiveness is to fight like a bunch of kids throwing hands like some edgy teenagers, but i guess dumbasses love to see some violence and blood huh? And then act like its part of the word competitive, fucking idiot... But obviously they all get triggered when those violence and blood appear on the streets, sorry people we're just here competing on the streets no big deal *someone gets shot and dies* oops that person lacks the heart to compete... How dumb can you be... Nba television shows are filled with retarded people talking out of their ass, they get triggered when lebron said hes the goat because they think lebron disrespect the legends (which he did not btw, only convoluted brainless haters think so) but legends getting a farewell tour is wrong and they shouldnt be friendly and respectful to the legends who is gonna retire... Hypocritical brainless fucks

                                  Michael Edwards they don’t measure them they list them at certain heights when they get drafted to make them fit a criteria. That’s why Kevin love is listed at 6’10 because who would draft a 6’8 power forward?

                                  Michael Edwards Nah some time teams list them differently, like KD was listed at 6’9 even though he was 7’0

                                          i honestly thinks that they are friends fr, not BFFs, but friends. They both dogs trying to get into each other minds on the court, and thats it IMO. Russ even follows Dame back on IG, and he doesnt do that to many others (KD, Steph, and other superstars).

                                                If Westbrook doesn’t play yesterday okc loses by 20 plus. Didn’t even come out aggressive tried to get others involved including “playoff p” and it wasn’t working. And this team most definitely could not be carried just by PG. and let’s not act like dame wasn’t cold majority of the second half. If you wanna say dame does some things better than Russ I’ll give you that but better overall player stop it. I’ll respect you saying kyrie better than Russ more even tho i disagree with that as well.
