Lillard Bitter About Lack of Respect
He (Damian Lillard) admits he still has a chip on his shoulder about being overlooked by bigger schools. But his biggest issue was people not giving him his respect once he felt he had established himself as one of the best collegiate players in the nation.
So even after all you’ve accomplished, you’re still bitter?
“Definitely, man. It still bothers me,” Lillard told CSNNW.com. “It’s not even about not being recruited out of high school, it’s about my progress. Every time I did something good, everybody was saying it was because he’s at a small school. I want people to see that this is me, man. I better myself each and every year and I can compete with the best.”
