The Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard had his own to say in response to Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets saying his team needs to involve more players in offense instead of focusing on Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.

“To beat that team, we’ve gotta get more players involved,” Porter said after Denver lost Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The above video was seen by Lillard who gave a short reply on Twitter. “Smdh …,” he tweeted.

One Twitter user wrote that Porter is not wrong but that he took the wrong time to express his opinion. In response, Lillard maintained his stance. “Yes he is wrong. If you know you know and ima leave it at that,” the Blazers superstar wrote.

Another person wanted Lillard to elaborate on his position but Dame refused, saying it will make people think he is selfish. “Yes I can. Cuz clearly y’all mfs think on a selfish level to think this is coo,” he tweeted.

Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins appears to agree with Dame:
