Are you aware that the kerfuffle with Lillard and his supposed "entourage" has hit the front page of NBA.com?
The longer you and Lillard sit on the sidelines without commenting, the more people will assume that, because it's not refuted, the statements of the two men who were assaulted were true.
I am actually pretty surprised that there was no immediate response, but now that it's been stewing, isn't there anyone there who understands that getting in front of a story like this is better than hoping that it won't spread? Because, if you haven't noticed, it's spreading, and it's making you look bad.
Just my two cents. I would love to hear Damian's side of this, or at least a response saying that you can't talk about it due to pending legal action, but that there is another story to tell.
But to not say anything?
The silence is hurting my ears and the ears of millions of others. This story was not (and, with that photo, couldn't possibly be) contained. Time to deal with it. Publicly. Now.
