    Does Fentress have inside info on Dame-related matters?

    Ikr, I mean, to make such statement, refuting a national journalist in Shams, he must have inside info (instructions from Goodwin)

    Lillard not yet traded goes to training camp and plays.
    Lillard traded will play for that team.

    If the Blazers flat out tell him that Miami’s offer isn’t acceptable — and what they’ve offered … and there will be no trade with them, then it gets interesting.

    If Miami cannot or will not pony up, that’s on them.

    And Dame just might say fuck it, I'll stay here and re-energize the franchise.

    I think they really value Martin.

    Don't like Fentress' addon: "but would an NBA team risk giving up major assets for what would be an unhappy point guard owed $216 million?"
    I've really come to hate this guy Fentress.

    Fentress is a terrible journalist and a human dipstick

    but that question is logical

    I don't know. Are there any past instances where a star got trade to a club that wasn't his first choice and then didn't perform?

    Better than leaving them with none. He was always a rental.

    True mods don't need green font.

    Didn't he just have one year on his contract? Lillard should be a better option, he's tied up.

    I've seen a bunch of Heat fans upset that they didn't just trade for Beal who was given up for like...nothing.

    I don't why. Herro is similar to Beal. They need a PG.

    Aldridge talks a little about Damian. Says Lillard wanting out must be tough, and Dame must have got pushed to a breaking point.

    the Lillard question to LaMarcus is at 14:20

    My inside sources think it was the supermax contract the Blazers gave him that pushed him out the door.

    Give me a fucking break
