Damia Lillard has long been known for loyalty. However, loyalty can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Lillard hasn't shied away from the frustrations of playing for a franchise, not in the championship mix. Now it seems as if the NBA All-Star is continuing to push a change of heart. In a recent verse dropped by Lillard, it appears as if the Portland star is speaking on his tenure with the Trail Blazers. A tenure that has been nothing short of a phenomenal run with one franchise.
In Lillard's latest freestyle, "Heaven or Hell," the All-Star point guard drops a line on ring chasing. "Plotting on a ring, they say I should do the Lakers. F**k that loyal s**t.” Of course, the line is just a part of Lillard's musical freedom as an artist. However, fans will still run with the line as it is a part of Lillard's thoughts and heart. Lillard isn't the type to tell the world his future career plans in a situation like this. If anything, Lillard would tell the Portland franchise his future intentions before anyone else.
Damian Lillard Will Remain Loyal Until The End
However, loyalty doesn't mean Lillard will be a Trail Blazer forever. Lillard can give everything he has to the franchise and still feel the need to move on. The same can be said for the organization. Even if fans see Damian Lillard in another uniform, he should always be remembered for loyalty. Lillard has helped lead the franchise to one Western Conference Final in his time. Unfortunately, the team came up just short of reaching the NBA Finals.
The line is just a line from someone expressing their artistic side. No one should have any opinion other than that. However, it is hard to imagine that somewhere in Lillard's mind, he doesn't share the sentiment. Would the Lakers even be a good destination for championship aspirations next season? Are the Trail Blazers even thinking about moving Lillard? These questions aren't even on anyone's radar at the moment, which is okay. However, sooner or later, these questions will be looking for answers. Let us know in the comment section below if you think Lillard is seeking a better opportunity.
