What Is Damian Lillard Getting At in Latest Instagram Post??


He was just awarded the Teammate of the Year Award this week, and dropped a legendary 55-point performance in a Game 5 loss, but once again, Damian Lillard's Portland Trail Blazers have failed to go the distance in the NBA playoffs, and he has every right to be upset. 

But Portland fans have to be wondering... just what does Lillard's latest Instagram post mean? Is Lillard hinting at reconsidering his dedication to the Trail Blazers??

Citing lyrics from rapper Nipsey Hussle, Lillard asks "How long should I stay dedicated? How long til opportunity meet preparation?"

Some reports have at least six or seven teams already reaching out to the Trail Blazers about Lillard's availability. 

The New York Knicks, the LA Clippers and the Miami Heat are among the Lillard suitors. 

As for Lillard, he clearly is not in a happy place. As he pointed out after their first-round elimination at the hands of a short-handed Denver Nuggets team:

We didn’t win a championship, so obviously where we are now isn’t good enough. I don’t know what a shakeup looks like, or what changes will be made or could be made, but obviously as it is wasn’t good enough.

 This could be a long offseason in Portland.
