Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard admitted it was “disappointing” to hear Russell Westbrook’s comments about the All-Star Game selections following Lillard’s addition to the roster and Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Paul George’s absence.

“I respect Russ a lot, so it was kind of disappointing to see him say that,” Lillard said prior to Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. “Because he’s played against me, he’s played against our team, he knows what I’ve accomplished. Not just this year, but over my career. So it was a little bit disappointing, but I know that I earned my spot this year. And that’s pretty much what it is: I earned my spot.”
