Damian Lillard sends best wishes to injured Patrick Beverley

Although the two have had their differences on the court, any mutual animosity did not stop Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard from sending his best wishes to injured Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley upon learning about the latter’s torn meniscus Friday.

Per Oregon Live:

“I’m sorry to hear it happened to him. It happens in the game of basketball, in any sport. Hopefully, he will recover from it. I wish the best for him.


“I’m sure I’m being asked about it because me and him had a small run in. But it makes it a better matchup with him on the floor. Any time somebody gets hurt, that’s not something you want to hear.”

As you probably recall, Lillard called Beverley’s on-court antics “irritating” earlier this month, with Beverley responding that Lillard was “a whiner.”

Can’t we all just be friends?
