Damian Lillard is ‘Jesus, masquerading in Adidas’

Portland Trail Blazers

For the last two games, Damian Lillard has been playing like he is gunning for the NBA bubble MVP and most certainly for a spot in the playoffs. 

Dropping 51 points against the 76ers and following it with 61 points against the Mavericks to help keep the Blazers alive and in the 8th seed, Dame is a man on a mission since his missed free throw attempts against the Clippers last Saturday.

Now we know Skip Bayless has been a hater, not giving Lillard the credit he justly deserves.

Bayless’ ‘Undisputed’ co-host Shannon Sharpe, on the other hand, has been quite amazed at what Lillard has been doing.

So much so, Sharpe went so far as to make a Divine comparison. You guessed it: Jesus.

I was thinking to myself, you know what? That is Jesus.. masquerading as Dame Lillard in Adidas - -Shannon Sharpe

As bold of a statement as that may be, Lillard has been showing up and showing out in this restart when the Blazers need him.

Scoring 112 points in the last two games is a statement on its own, and it’s good to see at least one of the hosts from FS1’s Undisputed can see the incurable play Lillard has been displaying.
