Oakland native/TrailBlazers star Damian Lillard had some nice words for the Warriors after Golden State repeated as champions by sweeping the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

"Congrats to them," Lillard told ESNEWS. "Regardless of how good their team is and how talented their team is, it's hard to repeat. Some people get bored with that success in the process of getting it done. They got it done back-to-back times, especially finishing it with a sweep, that was impressive.

"But for the rest of us in the league, all of us, we're trying to knock them off. We're trying to knock them off the top, and that's going to be a tough thing to do. Congratulations to them, but that ended (Friday) night and now I'm pretty sure everybody's thinking about the next time."
