A recent Bleacher Report piece revealed how LeBron James, while he was with the Cavaliers, told the team he’d like them to trade for Damian Lillard. LeBron has said numerous times how much he admires Dame’s skill, and even Dame was quote in the piece saying they “would complement each other well.”
Unsurprisingly, Dame reinforced his commitment and love for Portland, saying “I love where I am.” But with Lillard’s commitment unquestioned to Portland, it raises the question as to whether or not the franchise has done enough to support their All-NBA point guard?
If Lillard wasn’t so committed to Rip City, would Portland be able to do enough to keep him? Hard to believe that when LeBron James is explicitly recruiting him to partner up.
So, sound off here. Have the Blazers done enough to help Dame?
