How Damian Lillard’s Statements Will Change the Trail Blazers

After a day of rumors regarding trade demands and his status with the Portland Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard took the podium following a Team USA practice to make clear his thoughts on his tenure in Portland and what he needs to see from the Blazers in order to remain happy.

As with all PR opportunities, clarity is in the eye of the beholder. For most people, the bias with which they came into the press conference is the same bias with which they will leave it. There were opportunities for the “Lillard is Staying Forever” camp to lift their cheers.
