Damian Lillard: ‘I’m not unhappy

Damian Lillard

Portland Trailblazers star Point Guard Damian Lillard is siding with the women of the WNBA in the belief that they deserve to make more money as professional athletes.

"I'm straight up. I'm straight up with coach, I'm straight up with Neil, straight up with you all", Lillard told a media gathering, according to NBC Sports.

Damian Lillard: "It's the Western Conference". I love our coaching staff.

"I'm not unhappy. I love where I live". So they're going to be one more year experienced together, probably going to be a little bit better. "It is what's it's always been, but just a little tougher". Putting him on the Lakers would be good for the team if they wouldn't give up any key pieces like Ball and Ingram, however Portland would make sure they would receive those players in exchange for Lillard. Bazz played big minutes for us, Pat played big minutes for us - so we lose three rotation players that gave us a lot and contributed to our season past year.

The belief is that the four-time Olympic gold medallist would likely be waived, allowing him to hit free agency - and there are no shortage of suitors for his signature. It's just the urgency of wanting to make the right steps in the right direction so we can compete. Like I said previous year, it's the urgency I want, to make those steps in the right direction so we can compete.

But as far as truly contending goes, it's going to be tough for Lillard and company to make any noise out West for a while. "Obviously it's not like we're a destination". "He was one of my best friends in the league; one of my favorite teammates I've played with. It's tough to attract players to want to come here".

"Both Gary and Anfernee, they're both impressive", Lillard said.

The current reality of the National Basketball Association is that teams that want to contend need a minimum of two All-Star-caliber players to even get into the conversation of being a title contender.

However on Sunday, Lillard quashed any rumors of a departure as he maintained he was happy in Portland. The way I see it, you're going to have the Golden State's, the Rockets.

Lillard's name has popped up, as have the names of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Kevin Love, Kawhi Leonard, and DeMar DeRozan, among others. "And I feel like we are trying to do that".
