Damian Lillard has a valid argument, because like he said he was a small 7 year old when this news was circulating the sports airwaves. There weren’t many people who knew about Chauncey Billups’ rape case until it was brought back up in recent days. It was swept under the rug for the most part, even when he was working for ESPN.

On the flipside the fans coming at him make good points too, since the news of Billups’ sexual assault case started circulating before he was hired as Blazers coach. Was Lillard really completely unaware? It’s definitely possible, but easy to see why people think he knew.

One thing that’s for sure is that Blazers staff had to be aware, so they must really think Chauncey Billups is innocent like he claimed way back then.
