Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were a duo that powered a very successful stretch of Portland Trail Blazers basketball. The Portland Trail Blazers have made the playoffs every single year since the 2015-16 season, and they even made the Western Conference Finals during the 2018-19 season.

Despite their regular-season success, the Damian Lillard - CJ McCollum backcourt was unable to get to the NBA Finals. This season, the franchise has elected to move on from CJ McCollum and sent him to the New Orleans Pelicans for a Josh Hart-centered package earlier in the season.

Recently, Damian Lillard has changed his profile picture to some artwork of himself in a Trail Blazers jersey, and CJ McCollum in a Pelicans jersey. It seems as though this was a way to commemorate their years together.

NBA fans went crazy when reacting to Damian Lillard's changing his profile picture, with some even suggesting that the Trail Blazers should send him to another team such as the Lakers.

The Portland Trail Blazers have engaged in a re-tooling process ahead of next season, trading away established veterans such as CJ McCollum and Norman Powell to allow younger players such as Anfernee Simons to get developmental minutes and improve. It is clear that a new era is about to begin in Portland and it remains to be seen if Damian Lillard will stick around to be a part of it. With that being said, there is a scenario where the Trail Blazers can clear $60 million in cap space this summer to build around Damian Lillard, so perhaps they'll elect to compete next year after this down season.

Damian Lillard is one of the best point guards in the league, and hopefully, we see him win a championship prior to the end of his career. Hopefully, that can happen in Portland, as he has been loyal to the franchise for so long.
