"No one will blame Dame."
That is your view.
I would 100% lay the blame at Dames feet if he forces his way out of Portland.
You can only judge a person’s character in a time of great stress or difficulty.
Literally nothing matters when everything is going your way. It’s how you act when things go sideways that you will be judged.
If Dame forces his way out of Portland it will not make him a bad person. It will however put an ugly stain on his legacy and character. Especially because of how he has chosen to portray and market himself over the years.
It’s the same as LaMarcus. He is not a bad person because he left Portland; but his legacy has been soiled because of how he did it.
He still has fans here… But far far fewer and he now has a whole slew of detractors.
It’s not reasonable to think LaMarcus’ legacy didn’t take a hit, and so will Dames.

If you take Dame at his word from the past few years..
Then he is holding up the CJ trade.
His contact and CJs contacts are also hamstringing the organization.
That’s why if he forces his way out because "the team wouldn’t get him help…"
Well homeboy needs to look in the mirror.
Blazer fan first and always, even despite ownership.
Also if Damian does weasel out of his 4 year 176 million dollar supermax contract that he signed… Well all that bull about character and integrity go right out the window.
Actions speak louder then words. Dame is a master at public image, but the dude is not as good as his rep would have you believe.
As Mark Twain once said:
"Give a man reputation as an early riser and he can sleep tell noon."
That’s your Lillard.
