    Lillard can obviously score 60pts, but you have to ask if he can do it so easily and efficiently why doesn't he do it every game?

    I had Chat GPT write an article about renaming Portland after Dame - https://chat.openai.com/chat

    Write an article Portland Oregon being renamed Lillardland after Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard

    Portland, Oregon, has been renamed Lillardland in honor of Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard. The city's residents and officials have come together to celebrate Lillard's impact on the community, both on and off the court.

    Damian Lillard, also known as "Dame" and "Logo Lillard," has been a dominant force in the NBA for several years. He has led the Portland Trail Blazers to several deep playoff runs and has established himself as one of the top players in the league.

    In addition to his impressive on-court accomplishments, Lillard has also made a significant impact in the Portland community through his philanthropic efforts. He has established the Damian Lillard Foundation, which provides resources and support to underprivileged youth in the area. He has also been a vocal advocate for social justice issues, using his platform to raise awareness and drive change.

    The renaming of Portland to Lillardland is a testament to the impact that Damian has had on the city and its people. This change serves as a reminder of the incredible impact that athletes can have on their communities, and the positive impact that they can have on the world.

    Lillardland will now serve as a symbol of the city's appreciation for Damian Lillard and all that he has done for the community. The city is proud to honor its hometown hero and will continue to support him in all of his future endeavors.

    In conclusion, the renaming of Portland, Oregon to Lillardland is a fitting tribute to Damian Lillard and the impact that he has had on the city. Lillard is a true role model for all, both on and off the court, and the residents of Lillardland will continue to support and celebrate him for years to come.

    What?
    You don't like Lillardland?
    How could you?
    And you call yourself a Blazer fan?

    Only 1 team wins the championship every year. Does everyone else suck?

    I think it's Phil Beckner, Dame's trainer.

    Since he's straight, I'd say no, not his boyfriend.

    Does anyone, or maybe HCP, know if "Lobot" ( guy wearing headset ,with hardly an expression on face, during this celebration), still works for the Blazers. I always crack up watching the video of this moment because of this guy.

    Should it be the players decision on how a team should recapitalize him/her?

    Not sure that word is what you meant to say.

    But yes, the players should have a say in how they are honored.

    He was an NBA league rep….. for playoff and national games, the league sends out a rep to deal with the timing and breaks. Haven’t actually seen him in forever.

    Guess the team might not be getting a bunch of national attention? Go figure?
