There are trolls on Twitter.
People have burner accounts.
Heck, a lot of the time we don’t even know if a Twitter account is really a person or just some internet bot.
But on Thursday night, the real Damian Lillard stood up.
The Trail Blazers five-time All-Star point guard was alerted by a fake Lillard account on Twitter from a fan.
And now the whole Twitterverse knows it as Lillard pointed out the “imposter” after the fake account tweeted:
"@Lakers Let’s give the people what they want"
That caption was coupled with a photoshopped picture of Lillard wearing a Lakers jersey.
As one would imagine, Twitter blew up. And Lillard continued to engage with fans.
The 2013 Rookie of the Year shared some sound advice while he was looking to have a Zen morning Thursday after posting this at 7:30a.m:
It seems fitting, to wrap-up the day now calling out an imposter.
Nice try, @DameInThe4th.
