Now, Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless is the latest to take a shot at Lillard.
I’m still not buying “Dame Time” and apparently the Clippers aren’t either. @undisputed. 9:30 AM-Noon ET. FS1.

Bayless’ shot at Lillard comes the day after the star guard dropped 51 points against the Philadelphia 76ers to keep the Blazers’ playoff hopes alive.
Lillard responded to Bayless, saying that he has never respected the sports pundit.
I have never been buying nothing about you fam. You a joke. And after our private convo full of back pedaling you will never have my respect 🤡 https://t.co/do0yxFgUju
Lillard has been doing everything he can to try to will the Blazers into the playoffs, but he may have shot himself in the foot by missing two clutch free throws with 18.6 seconds left against the Clippers on Saturday.
Regardless, Portland is just a half-game behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.
After his miraculous performance on Sunday, Lillard will look to deliver for the Blazers once again when they take on the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
Lillard is averaging a career-high 29.3 points per game to go along with 8.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds this season.
