Blazers superstar Damian Lillard has revealed details about his personal calls with analyst Skip Bayless on his teammate Carmelo Anthony’s podcast “What’s in Your Glass?”.
Skip Bayless is a notorious NBA analyst known for constantly throwing shade at superstars like LeBron James and Damian Lillard. When Skip refused to appreciate Lillard’s 51 point show against a tough 76ers team, the Blazers star bashed him on twitter.
The all-star then revealed details about their personal calls where the Blazers star mentioned that Skip backtracked on everything he had said earlier. The analyst has sworn to give the star a reply tomorrow on Undisputed tomorrow.
Skip has been bashed by Lakers fans for repeatedly ignoring the defeats of their Staples Center rivals LA Clippers while going hard on LeBron and co. even when they annihilated teams during the course of the season. The analyst has always come down heavily on LeBron James even when the icon was winning rings in Cleveland and Miami.

Lillard reveals his conversation with Skip Bayless
The Blazers teammates were having a free-wheeling teammate on Melo’s podcast. However, things got a bit heated when Lillard approached the Skip Bayless incident.
Damian Lillard revealed interesting anecdotes during his conversation with teammate Melo on the latter’s podcast. He revealed that although Skip had made several negative comments on him in the past, the analyst backtracked on his comments during their call.
He further emphasised that he could go into the details, but that would make Skip look really bad in public.
Skip Bayless has promised to come out in his defense during his next appearance on the Undisputed and expect the incident to flame up even further.
The general consensus around Bayless is that he tried to say things that stir NBA stars up, so as to increase the television ratings of his show.
Lillard has had a rough past few days as he first had a heated war-of-words against Clippers stars Paul George and Pat Bev.
The Blazers have to win their remaining two games to qualify for the playoffs this season as they are chased by the in-form Suns and Spurs for the 9th spot which would lead them into the play-in tournament.
