A fan on Twitter started a campaign for Lillard to come to Phoenix but the Bubble MVP nipped it in the bud.
The All-Star Trail Blazer, who often will engage with fans online and have fun with folks regarding the news of the day, took the opportunity to let everyone know he would not be coming to the Valley.
Sorry Suns fans. Keep dreaming. Lillard has built up a fun and consistently competitive team in Portland and seems set to keep fighting for a championship in the Pacific Northwest, which is also pretty close to where he grew up in Northern California.
Maybe if the Suns keep winning, Phoenix will be back in the superstar player sweepstakes again, but don’t count on Lillard making the leap. Instead, we’ll get to wait until next season to see Lillard and Booker duke it out in the race for the Western Conference playoffs.
Just don’t bother asking Lillard about it on social media anymore.
