“It’s not the same. They are a great offensive team and I think they will still be a good defensive team, but it’s different than when (Andrew) Bogut is not back there. It’s just not the same."
After the win, Draymond delivered a message to Lillard.
"That was great for us to really come out and put that kind of game together on the defensive end, especially when our defense has been called out -- that there's no anchor and it's not the same and all that -- I think some opinions will change sooner than later. But until then, we'll just keep doing that. And when they change, we'll keep doing that still. It was fun to do that...
"I love when people say stuff like that. I take it personal, so I appreciate it. It really got me going on that end tonight. And I felt amazing out there, and I think our defense was amazing.
"So yeah I love when people say stuff like that. Continue to do it."
It's also possible that Lillard "can't stand" Draymond because the Warriors ended the Blazers' season each of the last two years.
"I mean, like I said about [former Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge], I wouldn't have done it. For me, I'm not joining nobody," Lillard said.
When it was brought up that he'd join LeBron if given the chance, Lillard responded by saying this: "I'm not joining nobody. I would not win a championship before I go and team up and do all that. Unless it was something I couldn't control."
A hypothetical scenario was posed to Lillard: Let's say you're 34 years old (Lillard is currently 27 years old) and you had the chance to join two of your superstar friends on another team. You still wouldn't do it?
"I’m saying this because this is how I feel, not how I feel at the moment. That’s just how I feel about it. I think if that’s what somebody wants to do, I’m not mad at them for doing it. I’m just telling you what I’m not going to do. That ain’t how we get down," Lillard responded.
To wrap up the topic, Lillard was asked if he holds it against any player that does decide to team up with other superstars.
"Nah, if it make them feel good, if they comfortable doing it, then do you," Lillard said.
