Blazers’ Damian Lillard Has No Interest in Joining a Super Team

Portland Trail Blazer superstar guard Damian Lillard wants to see the Blazers become a Western Conference powerhouse, but as teams go the route of building super teams, Lillard prefers that Portland focuses on building a consistent team built on chemistry.

“When you look around the league, you just see the talent. Teams are stacking up on talent,” Lillard said, according to The Athletic’s Jason Quick.

“You see a lot of guys teaming up and guys wanting to be on the same team. When you want to compete with that — like on a championship level — you gotta try to fight that with firepower. For us, I think our chemistry, our style of play, and the coaching we have — that’s a big thing for us. So like, we lean on that. We’ve been successful with it. But when you talk about a championship level, it’s tough to compete with those ultra-talented teams — Golden State, Oklahoma City, teams that just have player after player after player.

Lillard sees the quickly approaching NBA trade deadline as an opportunity to make smart decisions, such as keeping the current roster together

“So you don’t want to go into the trade deadline just doing stuff to do it, then you break up something that was working for you,” Lillard said. “So I think you are almost better off taking your chances with ‘Let’s see if togetherness if going to beat the talent at some point.”’
