Now the NBA is reportedly ready for the Board of Governors to vote format 22 the proposed team to return to play in Orlando, it seems Trail Blazers All-star Damian Lillard and the Blazers, who are currently in a three-way tie for ninth place in the West, will get a chance to playoff.
Lillard made headlines last week with his comments about potential NBA plans to continue this season and don’t want to play in ‘meaningless matches’.
If we come back and they are like, ‘We add a few matches to finish the regular season,’ and they throw us there for a meaningless match and we don’t have a real chance to get into the playoffs, I’ll be with my team because I’m part of team. But I will not participate. I’m telling you that now. – Damian Lillard tells Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports.
Lillard continued, “If we come back and I don’t have a chance to playoff – I will show up for work, I will train and I will be with my team. I will do all of that and then I will sit right on the bench during the match.”
But now, when 22 teams prepare to pack their bags for Orlando, while waiting for the NBA Board of Governors’ decision, it’s crazy to think about Golden State Warrior not be among the traveling team. The Warriors hold the worst record in the league at 15-50 after a trip to the NBA Finals the previous season.
This week, Soldiers stand guard Stephen Curry joined Anthony Morrow and Justin Jack in ‘The Life Podcast’ to discuss George Floyd’s assassination, as well as how COVID-19 affected the NBA and plans to move forward, and more.
But hey, Curry understands where Lillard came from with his comments about a meaningless game.
I feel what he said because it’s mentally difficult to get away with this long gap, and then prepare for a game that you know doesn’t matter. I understand. – Steph Curry on the Life Podcasts’ Life
Curry added, “it’s a difficult thing to put your mind in that room, ‘I’m going to go here and compete and beat a – and know in five matches we will return to the offseason again.’ “
