Damian Lillard really thinks the Blazers will upset the Warriors

Portland Trailblazers star point guard Damian Lillard raised a few eyebrows with a prediction he made a few days ago. Lillard was asked about the Blazers upcoming playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. Lillard playfully predicted that the Blazers would win the series in six games. That caused quite the stir, but Lillard is not back down from his stance. The star point guard really believes that the Blazers will upset the Warriors.

“I was asked in six or seven [games], and I said six. It was a lighthearted exchange,” Lillard told ESPN on Thursday. “But with that said, I do believe we can win the series.”

“I have a lot of respect for the Warriors,” Lillard told ESPN. “…We’re playing our best basketball right now and that has given us a lot of confidence.”

I don’t understand why everyone is so uptight about Lillard’s comments. I mean, what else should we expect him to say about this. While I definitely believe that Blazers will be competitive in this series, I think we all know what the outcome of this series will be.
