With all eyes towards L.A. and Phoenix, a certain point guard in Portland is stirring up quite a bit of attention for his recent post on Instagram, in which he seemingly questions his loyalty to the Trail Blazers.
"How long should I stay dedicated? How long til opportunity meets preparation?"
The lyrics seem to indicate major frustration by Dame, who just lost his second-straight first-round playoff series.
No doubt, he is tired of the underwhelming performance of the franchise and is calling on the front office to take action and make the necessary changes.
The post has since been deleted, so that could be good news for Portland fans.
Despite another crushing blow, no reports of a trade request have been made, or that Lillard is anywhere close to it. In fact, now might be the best time for him to stay.
The organization is feeling immense pressure to keep Lillard happy, and we can expect them to take drastic measures to ensure the roster is in better shape for a title run in 2021-22.
In the meantime, the masses will continue to speculate on Dame's future, and whether or not he will be staying with Portland long-term.
That will be one of the biggest stories of the offseason, for sure.
