In case you missed it, Damian Lillard, and Paul George exchanged some blows today, with the highlight being a Twitter back-and-forth between the two stars in the sky, and the Clippers guard Patrick Beverley as well.
After the Lady closed a back-to-back free-throw attempts late in the game, the Clippers bench laughed at him, as if it’s all but guaranteed to win. This led to a comment from Damian on what he has taken away two of the players in the previous post-season matchups, and that, unlike them, he doesn’t jump teams in order to “avoid the grind.”
Well, the PG responded to this statement saying that his time in Indiana, even though temporary, was still more successful compared to what the Lady is doing in las vegas right now.

This has led to a huge debate online, with some taking George’s hand, and the others to defend the Girl.

Lady was there, and got swept by the warriors, without the KD. this year, he may not be in the play-offs. PG had the Heat up against the ropes twice

So… who would be more successful? There’s no real way to answer your question. They reached the Conference Finals, but neither made a thing of the past.
In Indiana, PG13, was very much a season, and his presence has made them a serious threat to the LeBron-led Heat in the course of time. As for Lillard, the Blazers would most likely be a lottery team without his services. And even though the team has seen limited success during his tenure there, he was loved and respected by the fans, for something PG, but when he moved out.
With the Pacers, PG, averages 18 points and 6.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game. Lady is looking for a career numbers of 24 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.2 rebounds.
All-in-all, both players have a case, but it’s the best way to settle on the court this season. If Lillard is able to prove that he is capable of leading the Blazers to a Championship, the haters will be silenced… and George is the one who has to prove himself.
