Men’s Portland Trail Blazers Damian Lillard Nike Black Swingman Jersey – Icon Edition

Damian Lillard has become frustrated with his team’s play, as the Portland Trail Blazers have lost three in a row after Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal torched them for a career-high 51 points on Tuesday night.

The All-Star point man has had his share of enlightened performances through his five-year career, and had no problem tipping his cap to one of the best shooting talents in the league.

“He had a special game,” said Lillard, who collected 30 points, eight rebounds and nine assists, according to Kerry Eggers of The Portland Tribune. “He’d struggled shooting the ball the last couple of games. Odds were… a guy that skilled who shoots the ball like he does was going to get it going. I’ve been in that position before, so I know how he felt. At that point, we have to address that problem and try to make it a little bit harder.”

Yet, Damian Lillard expressed his frustration with the way the Blazers have been playing, especially after dropping three games at home after coming back from winning four of five games on the road.

“We have to play like we’re somebody,” Lillard said. “We have to have some swagger about us. We have to have that confidence. We have to be able to play the kind of basketball that allows us to do that — myself included.”

“When I turn the ball over, it takes way from the team. taking a tough shot here and there is taking away from the quality of our offense. Those things take the life out of a team.”

The Blazers will have a shot to rebound from this skid in a statement game against the Houston Rockets, who currently leads the Western Conference at 18-4 this season.

While the New York and Los Angeles teams are considered some of the big market franchises, not playing for teams in those areas does not necessarily define a basketball player and his greatness on the court, obviously. Take into consideration the greats of the league that played for small market teams and it makes it easier to understand that playing for in the bigger cities could be an advantage when it comes to advertisements and exposure, but ultimately, someone’s game should speak for themselves.

Portland has never been considered one of them, and despite that being the case, Blazers star guard Damian Lillard defended the situation he’s in. He had an exchange on Twitter with a fan and NBC’s Jason Quick, where he stated that he is happy to be where he is now.

It’s definitely a good sign for the Blazers faithful, as their team’s franchise player is showing a lot of loyalty and desire to continue his career when it started.

Damian Lillard has led the Blazers to multiple playoff appearances, and even with the slower pace of bringing in talent compared to other teams, he’s making the most out of what he has surrounding him. Lillard has also been a true leader on the court, helping his teammates become better.

Lillard will become a free agent after next season, and it remains to be seen if he will re-sign with the Blazers and stay true to his word. Should he decide to continue his career with them, it could lead to other stars staying put with the smaller market teams as well, which will definitely be helpful to having more parity in the league.
