You realize that if brooklyn didn't make that stupid trade with portland last season (6th pick and mehmet okur for gerald wallace) then lillard would have fell to us due to both golden state-7th pick and brooklyn-6th pick already having elite point guards in steph curry and d-will, imagine a lineup with lillard, derozan, gay ,amir and jv........... if only i could go back in time and talk billy king out of it
lillard might not have the same success w/ the raptors as he has in portland.
DC would value him less due to the defensive aspects.
This is key. He would've had to earn his way up and even then, would be limited to maximum 30 minutes a night. Portland needed him to command big minutes, if he was a raptor he wouldn't be commanding as many minutes.
