(update: The NBA YouTube page has changed the thumbnail to an actual pic of Lillard)

YouTube comments can really be harsh and besides the Youtubers that have been accusing the NBA of “hiding” highlights of the Heat loss last night, they had fun picking on this video of Damian Lillard dunking against the Spurs. Some laughed at the commentary because the NBA Dunk “Contest” was referenced. Others commented on the Blazers losing but most joked about the thumbnail the NBA used – the final image of each video promoting other videos and subscribing to the channel.
