Warning shot fired.
The NBA has issued a warning to Portland Trail Blazers All Star Damian Lillard for violating the league’s anti-flopping rule on April 7th during a game against the Denver Nuggets.
Lillard fell to the floor after being touched by Denver’s Mason Plumlee on a three-point attempt. Plumlee was whistled for a foul, but the league determined it was a flop.
And issued a warning to Lillard.
In response to the warning, Lillard posted the following on twitter:
“When they don’t call shit for the whole game u gotta sell it … and there was contact oh well.”

You can’t blame Lillard for doing everything he can to get a call.
If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.
But he was clearly touched.
