Blazers Say Damian Lillard is ‘More Oakland’ Than the Warriors

The Golden State Warriors’ new alternate jerseys pay homage to Oakland–their current home, which they’ll be fleeing for San Francisco in a few years—something the Portland Trail Blazers mocked on Twitter.

Damian Lillard is “more Oakland” than the reigning NBA champs according to the Blazers.

Dame, meanwhile, gave the Dubs’ new duds a back-handed compliment.

Per CSN Bay Area:

Lillard grew up in Oakland where he starred at Oakland High School and earned a scholarship to play at Weber State University.


Starting in the 2019-20 season, the Warriors are set to play in San Francisco at the Chase Center. The Warriors started as a franchise in Philadelphia from 1946-1962 before moving to San Francisco from 1962-1971.


Ever since the 1971 season, the Warriors’ home has been Oakland.
