    I certainly hate the Warriors too but if it meant Dame getting a ring I'd be fine with it. I know Dame is fine retiring without a ring but as a fan I'd love to see him in the Finals at least once getting the true recognition he deserves.

    Yeah the Lakers are a hell no for me. Warriors I can kind of deal with it because I love how they play the game.

    He’d get recognition for riding coattails. This is not how Dame wants to end his career. He would never agree to it.

    I don't think he'd get it in that case.

    I bet the heat would entertain a Lowry for Lillard trade too.

    I bet the hornets would entertain a Lemelo for Lillard trade.

    The Jazz would entertain a Conley for Lillard trade.

    Of course the Warriors would entertain a Lillard for Poole trade, lol.

    This was made by a GSW fan no doubt.

    We are NOT Trading Lillard for Poole. No way in hell.

    I'd take a Draymond, Pool and Moses Moody and get it done right now.

    I still think Boston is the most likely partner. If they end up getting knocked out by Miami, I would do Brown and Smart for Dame.

    I think Boston has had too much success to make that change. Earlier in the season maybe, but would you make that trade if you were Boston? I can see them wanting to move Smart, but not Brown.
    A Dame, Brown, and Tatum trio would be tough. But that would not help us.

    Boston got to the ECF thru defense...they know that. They wouldn't trade their two best perimeter defenders for Dame

    This would be like trading 32 year old Tim Duncan to the Lakers ....the day the Blazers trade Dame to the Warriors is the day I become a Warriors fan.....chump move to trade Dame in my view.

    If Portland could land Kuminga and Poole in whatever package, Portland would be off to a fine start over

    That may be but I have zero interest in trading the best Blazer ever who happens to be loyal to a fault. If the front office did this I'd have a hard time cheering for the franchise again. I'm not as big on Ant as some here are...I'd trade him without looking back but not Damian Lillard...ever.
