Damian Lillard On The Portland Trail Blazers: “Are We Gonna Get Something Done?”
Damian Lillard has been loyal to the Portland Trail Blazers, and the team has been loyal to him as well. It’s a great relationship back and forth, but it may not be a surprise anymore if Lillard and the Blazers happen to part ways sooner than later.
The Blazers are out of the playoffs this season and will now shift their focus on the impending NBA offseason. Lillard still wants to win, and recently, he made it clear that he’s not interested in playing with young players and rebuilding the team.
The pressure is on the Blazers to keep their superstar happy and form a legitimate title-contending team. In Lillard’s latest interview with Stephen A. Smith, the 32-year old point guard fired yet another warning to his longtime team.
“It ain’t a threat. I ain’t gonna say I’m putting them on the clock, I’m just saying if those things can’t be done, (if) we can’t do something significant like that then we won’t have a chance to compete on that level. Not only will I have a decision to make, but I think the organization will too because at that point, it’s like, ‘Are you gonna go young or are we gonna get something done?’”
