BTS member Suga’s favourite basketball player Damian Lillard has given him a shout-out saying that it ‘means a lot to him’ especially since the musician is ‘so far away’. In a video message, Damian said that he appreciated Suga being his fan and looked forward to meeting him.
In a video, shared by Damian’s team Portland Trail Blazers on Twitter, he said, “What’s up Suga? It’s Dame Lillard. I had a chance to see your article, somebody sent it to me. I appreciate your words. I don’t take it lightly to be someone’s favourite player but when they are a fan of our team and something that I care so much about, you know that means something to me. So I appreciate your words, I appreciate you being a fan of mine and showing me love.”
“You know, part of being the underdog is you know, to know that a lot of people don’t share the way you think, so the fact that you appreciate my underdog status and how I go about my business and you know, the things I want to accomplish, it means a lot to me, especially you being so far away. So thank you, much love to you, I look forward to meeting you. Peace,” he added.
Recently, in an interview with Vogue, Suga had spoken about The Portland Trail Blazers. “I prefer the underdogs to the big teams,” He told Vogue.
