Another year has gone by where Portland has wasted Damian Lillard’s prime. The Trail Blazers never seem to make a big splash or colossal move that could make them a contender, and Lillard appears to be stuck. Outside of C.J. McCollum, the Blazers don’t have a lot of players that complement Dame’s game, and they should have been focusing on garnering a roster that reflects that over the past several years. Perhaps it is just injuries, coaching, or defense holding this team back, but I suppose there is only one way to know for sure. Expect the Portland Trail Blazers to put out a lineup of Jusuf Nurkic, Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, Robert Covington, and Norman Powell.
