Damian Lillard has given everything he has to the Portland Trail Blazers for 10 years. He has been their leader, their star, their clutch performer, and has been loyal to the city, the fans, and the organization. He has never asked for a trade, never complained about his teammates, and never wavered in his commitment.

But after another season that ended in disappointment, Lillard might be ready for a change. He might be ready to join a team that can give him a better chance to win a championship. He might be ready to leave Portland behind.

Now, reportedly Phoenix Suns are looking for ways to acquire Lillard. Lillard to the Suns is a long shot at best. The Blazers would have to blow it up and put their star on the market, and the Suns don’t have the assets to entice them. DeAndre Ayton would be the obvious starting point, but the Suns already gave up a lot of picks to get Durant at the deadline.

The Suns are also a formidable force, with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. If they were to acquire Lillard, they would have three of the best offensive players in the league on one team, which would be almost impossible to stop.

NBA Twitter reacted with fear and awe at the possibility of Lillard joining either of these teams. Some fans welcomed the idea of another super-team forming in the league, while others lamented the lack of parity and competition.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:

The Blazers have a tough decision to make this offseason. They have to decide whether they want to keep Lillard and try to build a contender around him, or trade him and rebuild for the future. Lillard has a lot of value on the market and could fetch a huge return for Portland. However, trading him would also mean losing their franchise player and fan favorite, who has given them many memorable moments and performances.

Lillard’s future is one of the biggest stories of the NBA offseason, and it could have a huge impact on the league for years to come. Whatever happens, Lillard will always be remembered as one of the greatest players in Blazers’ history and one of the most clutch players in NBA history.
