NBA: Damian Lillard is redefining what basketball success looks like

If you’d like your comment to be here, send me a tip below. Your thoughts will be read before mine!

Right now, Damian Lillard …

Is getting ready to make $61 million dollars a year.

Plays in front of a hometown crowd that adores him.

Will likely be a Hall of Famer…


No offense, but *bleep* the rings.

Seriously, *bleep* it if he never wins a title.

And if you were on Twitter tonight following the news of Dame’s contract extension that will keep him in Portland, then you probably saw a lot of other fans voicing their opinion that they feel the same way.

It’s completely accurate to say that Damian Lillard is rewriting what NBA success looks like.

Is a championship legacy really worth more than what this athlete has accomplished and earned in his career? I’m not so sure.

I’ve been fortunate enough to watch Dame play a game in Portland. He’s absolutely loved there. And Portland is a really neat town. You’re a lucky athlete if you get to represent that town and fandom.

It’s comparable to what Aaron Rodgers has in Green Bay. That’s not an exaggeration.

And to bring it home here to Orlando (where this blog is published), I wish a player like Lillard would fall in love with us like he’s fallen in love with Portland.

Let’s not completely dismiss a title either. Its completely possible another superstar would run with him in Portland, and depending what the rest of the league looks like, it’s not completely out of the question.

And if he doesn’t, who cares? He’s still got everything you just read about.
