In the wake of (LaMarcus) Aldridge’s departure, (Neil) Olshey asked his new franchise player if he was comfortable with the direction they were going to take.

“This was not done without Dame’s (Damian Lillard) participation,” Olshey says. “If he was at all reticent, if he said it would be great if you could get me another vet to help out, we would have gone out and found a couple of other guys to take the pressure off of him. He’s not that kind of kid. He embraces it. He thrives on it.”
