The Portland Trail Blazers continue their quest for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Despite having a superstar in Damian Lillard, the Blazers are struggling to break among the elite teams.

Unlike other superstars who were in similar situations, Lillard is not tempted to move to where he would instantly become a title contender.

“The grass ain’t always greener. I feel like we can build something and get it done in Portland. I really believe that,” Lillard said via Orlando Sanchez.

Coming off of a 61-point game against Dallas, the 30-year-old point guard is averaging 29.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 8 assists per game.
