What happens when you bully one of Damian Lillard’s friends?
Recently, Portland Trailblazers’ guard Damian Lillard poster a picture of himself and a Special Olympics athlete on his Twitter account. One person decided to make a joke about it, and Lillard did not respond kindly towards him. Check it out below:

Even though this guy was trying to be mean, Lillard was able to stand up for what he knew to be right. We’re to treat everyone with kindness and respect. When someone breaks that, it’s our job to stand up for what is right, just like Lillard.
Happy Sabbath! 🙂
