Damian Lillard Clarifies Trade Stance if Blazers Start Out Slow

Damian Lillard’s loyalty for the Blazers continues to shine through.

Lillard trade rumors have been swirling around the All-Star for the last few seasons. Lillard wants to make things work in  Portland. Win or lose, it appears he’s not going anywhere. When asked whether or not he’d want to be traded if the Blazers start out slow,  Lillard responded the same as he answered on media day.

Damian Lillard on speculation picking up if the team starts slow:

“I’ll answer that the same way I answered it on media day. I’m not leaving Portland. … It’s an easy thing and a popular thing to say but it’s not gonna happen.”

Lillard might be loyal to a fault.  Especially if his singular goal is to win an NBA championship.  The Blazers need to surround Lillard with more talent if they want to compete in the West.

Easier said than done.
