    Yes, let’s have the guy that didn’t want CJ dealt and doesn’t value defense as much as relationships calling the shots

    It'd be awesome to see a 100 player governing board own an NBA franchise. The meetings to to discuss trade transactions would be hilarious to get on film.

    Love Dame, but not a fan of this honestly, unless he wasn't making on court personnel decisions. If he wants to hire a quality management system and enjoy as a silent owner? All for it.

    I swear guys even if he did own the Blazers it would prolly be like a 5 to 10% or less piece so to the people already talking shit and something that will prolly NEVER happen so just stop the Dame shit talking.

    And now, your DAMIAN LILLARD TOYOTA BLAZERS!

    Would be better if he owned a chevrolet dealership, of course.

    "owner" sounds racist, "governor" is more appropriate

    word "owner" should be forbidden in the us

    Agreed. I wouldn't mind if he was minority owner (<20%), but I don't want him having control

    Yes, an owner who lives in the Portland area, and has businesses in the Portland area, would be terrible.

    Wait. Why are we making up reasons why having Damian Lillard as an owner would be a bad thing??

    Agreed. We've never done it that way before, and by god, we should not change now!

    I've been floating this idea around here for years that Dame and Melo and several other wealthy players could start an investment group and buy the team. Dame knows people outside of hoops as well with his rap career. it's a possibility.

    Seeing as how he's done a great job ever since he became owner of the Thunder, I say yes.

    Yeah, but wouldn't it be cool to have Keljin Blevins back on the team and Haynes and Fentress becoming the Blazers co-directors of propaganda?
