Damian Lillard to DeMar DeRozan: “It’s a dirty game.”

Good to see some respect and support from his colleagues

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Damian Lillard posted a photo of he and DeMar DeRozan on his Instagram account yesterday with the line “It’s a dirty game.” The Portland point guard was most likely showing support for his fellow competitor in the wake of his surprise trade to the San Antonio Spurs last month.

DeMar, the Spurs welcome you with open arms. Come experience a little #loyalty.
