    So why did he decide to leave though i have not done any research on why he would want to im just curious im not the biggest blazer fan but i know you guys who are fans know they had a pretty solid squad if they could have just found there beat they could have done something great.

    Don't forget "jealous"...though that kinda goes hand-in-hand with insecure.

    I wouldn't doubt the last one for reals; cancer is a battle that never really ends.

    Decided that one championship was enough for the Warriors for another 35 years.

    I have long believed that the primary reason for him to head south would be for his mom. I really think that's the biggest reason for his defection.

    He didn't care for Portland that much in the first place, and didn't see the blazers as contenders. I think making it to the second round of the playoffs the season before last caused management to think the team was on the right track and that Lamarcus would stick around if the team kept winning. When Wes Matthews blew his achilles it also blew any minute chance of keeping the starting unit together and of retaining Aldridge.

    My dad survived lung cancer, but it decimated him. He went from being one of the strongest guys I know to a frail old man :(

    I went through something very similar last year; it's devastating emotionally to deal with.

    I don't begrudge LA that reasoning; I don't even wish he'd tell us. I just wish I knew for sure.

    LMA wanting to be closer to his mother, who lives in Dallas, is pure speculation. LMA has spent much of his off season’s time living in Newport Beach, CA.

    LMA’s son, Jaylen Lea born in 2009, lives in San Antonio with his mother, a x-girlfriend of LMA’s.

    If LMA wanted to play BB in Texas to be closer to his mother, or, possibly his son, he should have made that known at last years meeting with PA & NO. I am sure the Blazers would have done what they could to accommodate him by arranging a trade.

    Instead, LMA made false empty promises about signing a 5 year deal with the Blazers, and then ripped the heart, soul, and motor out of the Blazer's team.

    Damian Lillard is the heart and soul of the blazers, even LA knew it.

    Of course it's speculation! Jesus Christ do you think we're editing his Wikipedia entry here? It's a fucking message board!

    I suspect he never wanted to be here and wanted to fuck the Blazers over as hard as he could, but passive aggressively, as he is.
