While at his basketball camp in Beaverton, OR, on Wednesday, Lillard said “good luck” to any team trying to stop the Blazers with Carmelo (starting at 1:42):
“We can compete with anybody in the West, but I think when you get to those teams like Golden State, if we happen to run into them in a playoff situation now—we getting in the paint, and if they want to help off someone like Melo…good luck.”
Lillard immediately tried to diffuse the false headline, but it was already too late at that point.
