Listen: Lillard Lillard, Portland And Blazers discussed on Bogey and Wojo
"While there's a trend of star players in the NBA changing teams. Once they hit free agency. It appears that one all star in particular will likely be staying put in recent days ESPN, Stephen a Smith as blazers guard Damian Lillard, if he would consider leaving Portland and free agency responded by saying, quote, why would I be I don't think it even makes sense? If this point I'm quote by yourself, Damian Lillard playing entire career in Portland, man. I was I was thinking today about. How jerks the end of an era composite? I was thinking the honest. Maybe I forgot about Lillard Lillard cut from that old school cloth. He is loyal his chip on his shoulder. And he has said that he, and I believe him lamarcus Aldridge also wants it wasn't leave Portland. But you could just you could feel the lie as it came out of out of out of his mouth. I believe. I believe Damien. This guy was under recruited wasn't given the respecting deserve. When he got drafted. He's in a city that doesn't I think at the respect it deserves for the basketball team puts on the court. It's a great fit. We're on Portland. I've talked about a lot of how much I like I like the city. It is a place that is big and cool and hip and a big I mean, it's incredible beer wine. Cutter's not far away. Great music scene. Maybe the best bookstore in the country is the best books. I've ever been to like, it's a it's a really cool place and they love and they embrace their sports teams that they do and that connection is wasted on some players. It isn't wasting on Damien load. I I hope so I buy it when he says it for sure one of the biggest trends in college basketball, recently has been second and third tier programs. Hiring successful players on the NBA level to be head coaches despite little to no head coaching experience.."
