CelebnSports247.com reports that the NBA seems to revolve around the next superstar who tries to push his way off his current team and into a more desirable location.
Damian Lillard might just be that next superstar. The last week has done little to quiet the waters in Portland and the league will wait with bated breath to figure out his future.
If Lillard hits the market, there will be no shortage of teams trying to trade for the 30-year-old point guard. A top-10 player can reshape a franchise.
A Dame Lillard trade news comes on the heels of the back-to-back losses at the exhibition games for the first time since NBA players took over in 1992.
Here are a few takeaways from tonight’s game, starting with thoughts on Damian Lillard via BlazersEdge:
Team USA, and in particular, Damian Lillard, appeared eager to wash the taste of Saturday’s 90-87 loss to Nigeria from their mouths in tonight’s game. Lillard looked Moda Center, kick-your-shoes-off comfortable, hitting 4-of-5 from the field in the first seven minutes. Mind you, he had four field goals in total on Saturday. And to boot, he roamed the offensive glass, added to his now-burgeoning off-ball scoring highlight tape, and in the early going, he wasn’t as often the wanted man in opposing teams’ pick-and-roll sets.
Right now there are multiple teams are thirsting for Lillard, like the Lakers, The Knicks, Warriors, and 76ers.
