This loss is totally on Dame. not CJ's fault, not Stotts's fault, not Olshey's fault. Every star in the league at some point has asked for better teammates, even at a cost to sacrifice some friends, but Lillard has ALWAYS made it clear that friendship is more important to him than winning. He doesn't want CJ or Nurkic to be traded so that's the result, he's the one who said multiple times that he's ok with ending his career without a ring as long as he can say that he was a good teammate. There will be many more historic nights from Dame and every single one of them won't result in a success because with McCollum and Nurkic the ceiling is low.
