Damian Lillard hasn’t forgotten what Patrick Beverley and Paul George said to him in August.
The Clippers duo exchanged social media beef with the Trail Blazers star writing to Lillard “Cancun on 3.” George pitched in with the response “You getting sent home this year.”
After talking like that, the Clippers days were numbered.
In Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Nuggets, Beverley and George finally got what was coming to them. The Clippers, who initially led the series 3-1, trailed by 20-points late in the fourth quarter of Game 7. Ultimately, the Nuggets sent the Clippers packing from the NBA bubble, and CJ McCollum was ecstatic.
Lillard’s backcourt mate showed Patrick Beverley and Paul George no mercy. He delivered this heartless tweet, “Yooooo @Dame_Lillard you got an extra villa available in Cabo?"
McCollum, who was likely tweeting while drinking his new wine, continued to deliver the hot takes.
“I wonder if they packed before the game,” he joked.
Like many times before when Lillard delivered the 37-foot-buzzer beater over George or the iconic 0.9 shot with Beverley watching, Dame had to get in the last word.
McCollum, of course, said he’d bring the wine. Cheers!
Cancun on 3.
