Speaking to TMZ Sports, Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard was so insistent the Raiders wouldn't cut Brown that he joked he "might have to get my [Raiders] tattoo removed" if it happens.
Lillard is an Oakland, California, native and has not been shy about showing off his Raiders fandom. In addition to getting their logo tattooed on his arm, the four-time All-Star teased teammate CJ McCollum, a Cleveland Browns fan, after the Raiders' 45-42 win over the Browns in Week 4 last season.
The Raiders are exploring their options with Brown, including a possible suspension, leading into Week 1 after he was involved in an altercation with general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Lillard will have to wait for Oakland's decision leading up to the team's season and home opener Monday night against the Denver Broncos at RingCentral Coliseum.
