Damian Lillard Needs a superstar running buddy.
Things are not going well in Brooklyn. So Lillard takes his shot.
The sharpshooter for the Trail Blazers is making an inaccurate move in an Instagram story on Saturday for Kevin Durant to come to Portland. Unless he has Photoshop skills above basketball and hip hop talentLooks like he got some help.
Lillard posted that photo of himself standing next to Durant in a Trail Blazers costume sometime on Saturday afternoon. By Saturday evening, she was gone. But he left it long enough for social media users to take some pictures on the screen, and teammate Yusuf Nurkic among them.
Because of course. Why wouldn’t Nurkic and anyone else associated with the Trail Blazers want to join their franchise player on their court for Durant? Is there a chance that Durant is interested? Who do you know?
A Brooklyn Nets season that began with championship expectations ended with a first-round sweep fire by the Boston Celtics fueled by the sabotage of Keri Irving and He refused to be available For most of the regular season. Networks seem to be too Tired of Irving’s unreliability to the point where Irving’s future with the team is uncertain. It’s a case It could eventually lead to a split between Irving and Durant.
In that case, would Durant be interested in moving to Portland? On the purely basketball front, it’s more than just an interesting opportunity. Durant will be the star Lillard who has never benefited from playing alongside one another. The proposed pairing would instantly raise the Blazers into the ranks of title contenders.
Reality thinks such a move is highly unlikely, even if the requisite dominoes fall in Brooklyn and Durant was in fact interested in Lillard’s proposal. Durant is approaching the first year of Four-year extension of $194 million That puts him in control of Brooklyn during the 2025-26 season – unless he is traded first.
It all adds up to a ridiculously long shot. But if you’re a Lillard fan or a Portland fan, it’s fun to dream. It’s the heartbeat of the NBA’s off-season.
