    I like to Tunchi myself before I go to sleep at least 4 nights a week.

    Dude.... don't berate yourself before you go to bed. Not good for the self esteem.

    Why can't this backcourt contend? They've shown that they can be part of an elite defense and carry a bunch of mediocre role players.

    But why stop at Dame? Let's get every small-market star and trade them all to a big team! Let's have ONE GIANT SUPERTEAM and have it play the G-League every game so those poor NBA players never have to lose! It's the only fair course of action.

    Basically some dude on twitter tweeted this:
    Then Lillard responded with:
    Jason Quick most likely misinterpreted the "y'all" in the initial tweet as Portland fans and/or media, when it appears the guy may actually be speaking to the national audience instead.

    That's how I've read it anyway.

    Some people look for any and every reason to suggest a player (in this case Damian) isn't happy in Portland.

    Sometimes it is true, and maybe its true enough that it can feel justified, but it only creates a sell fulfilling prophecy. There is a lot of victim complex going on in Portland/Oregon sports, coupled with unrealistic expectations.

    That doesn't mean that Damian is reading this message board or twitter and thinking "fuck this shit, I want out of Portland", nor does it mean that other athletes are doing the same. I think that people who report on Portland (for us, and to us) are sometimes acting in their own self interests (hits, $$, etc) at the detriment to portland as a city.

    I.e., the whole "it rains here too much" for people who enjoy it/bring baseball here, or that there's nothing to do here (they're out of the state half the time and the other half of the time they're working).

    There comes a point where you just stop worrying about this crap, because someone is going to spin it negatively no matter how much effort you put into pointing out their full of shit.

    Quick is a good writer, but these sensationalist episodes he has are super annoying.
