Dear Damian Lillard,
This letter is from a really big fan who witness you drop 51 ppg against the kings of the regular season… the golden state warriors last year. I witnessed your elusive first career triple-double against the utah jazz with 21 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds. I was distraught when you didn’t even make the all-star team
You’re so underrated its not even funny. You won rookie of the year in the 2012-2013 season. You’re the player to participate in every all-star weekend event in history. Even though you didn’t win any of them, you’re the only player in nba history to do that!!! You averaged 25.1 ppg, 6.8 apg, and 4.0 rpg in the 2015-2016 season. 21.4 ppg, 6.3 apg, 3.3 rpg career wise. You’re one of the top players scoring wise in the nba. You even got the underrated trailblazers into the semifinals of the western conference.
The current situation of your team is looking very similar to the 2015-2016 season. Your team hasn’t traded any of the key players like Mccollum, Aminu or Plumlee but they didn’t get truly amazing players other than an above average Evan Turner. They got more potential, but potential doesn’t always win championships. In my opinion you should sign with another team if these next 2 years don’t work out... You would have played with the trailblazers for 6 years without getting past the semi-round.
Now if you get closer and closer to the championship like get to the wcf then you should stay but… if you can’t completely pull your team through you should move on. I would suggest the timberwolves or the bulls because these teams have the youngest talent/ best young potential at winning a title. Well see how this plays out in the upcoming season/years and i wish the best you Damian Lillard.
Sincerely signed by,
Lance Golden II
