Today on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker, Chris and Rob discuss Trail Blazers PG Damian Lillard’s comments on NBA’s culture today. ‘Dame Dolla’ says he doesn’t like how people are gauging a players’ overall success based on championship’s won and that the NBA he competes in today is much different than before.
Chris Broussard: “Damian Lillard gets love even though he hasn’t got to the Finals. And he’s a top 75 player! Kyrie Irving got a ring and he’s not even top 75. I don’t agree with the narrative that the media belittles the regular season. If we did, we wouldn’t be complaining about players load managing all the time. I don’t know what he wants.”
Rob Parker: “I don’t think it’s all about the media. That’s more about the players so people are definitely turned off on the regular season and that those games don’t seem to matter.”
