After a new early elimination in the playoffs, Damian Lillard could have desires elsewhere … That’s good, several teams could benefit from his talents, including the Lakers and Celtics according to a famous analyst!
Damian lillard was once again great for the Blazers in the playoffs… During this first round against the Nuggets, the All-Star took full advantage of the absence of Jamal Murray by posting statistics of very high level. 34.3 points, 10.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds… He couldn’t do much more to carry his own!
Unfortunately, all his efforts were not enough as Portland lost in just 6 games! And after the last setback, the one too many, Dame seemed particularly on edge. He not only had very harsh words to his team, he also published a quite controversial message on social networks… Faced with this situation, Kendrick Perkins has only one piece of advice: leave!
Hey @Dame_Lillard it’s time brother! You have done enough for that organization bro! It’s time for you to take your talents else where! Tea @Lakers gold @celtics would be a great fit for you. Carry on… IMOP

Lady, it’s about time my boy! You have done more than enough for this organization my brother. It’s time for you to bring your talents to a new franchise! The Celtics or the Lakers would be the perfect place for you. It is just my humble opinion.
Damian Lillard has always said he wants to stay in Portland, but the weight of eliminations could be the reason for his patience. And the Lakers could well use the help of a very high level point guard… Anthony Davis is unfortunately not reliable enough with his fragile health, and Dennis Schroder was particularly disappointing in the playoffs, with in particular an all-time record of nullity ! Lillard would quickly become an accomplice with the King …
In Boston too, he could take great pleasure in helping Jaylen Brown and especially Jayson Tatum to take a step forward! This very high level trio could compete with many teams in the East… One thing is certain, if Dame decides to move, there should be no shortage of suitors!
Damian Lillard could put the Celtics and Lakers on a course if he puts his bags there. The chances are slim, but you never know!
