Damian Lillard

His most recent trolling job came courtesy of Damian Lillard. After Lillard had told The Oregonian that he would wish the Golden State Warriors “good luck” if the Portland Trail Blazers acquired Carmelo Anthony, Green responded on Instagram.

Taking a screenshot of Team Stream notification, Green uploaded it to Instagram and basically told the Trail Blazers’ guard to knock it off. With everyone so focused on taking down Golden State, Green made sure to call it like he sees it.

Of course, Lillard is one of the most confident players in the league and there is a reason he is loved for his attitude. It would be a hypothetical battle that everyone would love to see play out if a trade occurred.


While this is something that is likely to never be proven, it did allow for everyone to enjoy one great Green moment online again. He basically gave him the big brother pep talk after his use of emojis.

Regardless of if Anthony ever becomes a Trail Blazer, this would be a fun little feud to see unfold. C.J. McCollum is one of the best social media artists in the NBA. He and Green could have some amazing trash talking battles.
