Although he doesn’t participate in intense sparring — “Obviously, [the Trail Blazers] would never really approve it,” he said — Lillard once toyed with the idea of participating in an exhibition bout. Former NBA guard Nate Robinson’s stunning knockout loss to YouTube sensation Jake Paul last November on the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. undercard isn’t the reason Lillard gave up that idea, but it certainly didn’t help. “I feel like he got in there really feeling like he could win, but I don’t think boxing is a sport you can take six months or eight months and be like ‘all right, I’m gonna go in here and fight,'” Lillard said.
Arenas appeared on Club Shay Shay to share his views on the matter. For him, losing to Paul was a trivial matter compared to the lambasting he received from his peers. “I know because of the Currys and LeBrons, everyone laughing—that probably hurt his soul. I think that hurt more than the actual fight, losing to a YouTuber. But it’s your peers, letting them down. As a big bro to him, the letdown is if you don’t get back in that ring.”
