Another offseason, another stretch of Damian Lillard photoshop jobs surfacing on the web.
It seems like a year, Dame is involved in trade rumors by both the fans and media. The idea that he would stay in an underachieving, small market organization just doesn't make sense to a lot of people, even despite Lillard's repeated attempts to express his loyalty.
Of course, Dame does occasionally respond to the rumors, just like he did on Wednesday night. After catching himself photoshopped in a Utah Jazz jersey, he delivered a rather hilarious response:
Dame isn't having any of it and isn't entirely off about it being a rough shop job.
In all seriousness, though, Dame isn't going anywhere. He's loyal to the Blazers and is playing an active role in helping the front office bring in their next head coach.
At 30-years-old, he's still got plenty of time to bring Portland a title, and the team seems more committed to that cause than ever before. With so much uncertainty, and the organization starving for change, it is really anyone's guess as to what this team will look like next season.
At the very least, however, we can expect Lillard to still be donning their jersey.
