Maybe Damian Lillard was in a bad mood following his Portland Trailblazers' loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday night, but his tweet (note: it's since been deleted, but I can confirm it did indeed come from his account) is totally uncalled for.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not even one of those guys who preach the high-road -- I'm all for athletes and public figures defending themselves against unruly fans in most cases -- but this female tweeter, named Angelique, wasn't even insulting Lillard. If anything she was giving him a compliment!
