Damian Lillard finally requested a trade by the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.
It had been coming for a while since Lillard hasn't won a thing with the Blazers but he made it official on Saturday.
After he requested a trade, word got out that he prefers to play for the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference. In fact, his stance right now is reportedly "Heat or bust."
"He wants to compete with Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, to grow inside that famed 'Heat culture' system under Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra while becoming the final piece to their championship puzzle," Amick said.
The Heat got to the NBA Finals without Lillard this past season but ended up losing in five games to the Denver Nuggets.
If they're able to add him for this upcoming season and beyond, they'll automatically jump to being a contender in the Eastern Conference.
Lillard is that good and showed it again this past season when he averaged 32 points, seven assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game. He did all of that while the Blazers finished 13th in the Western Conference with a 33-49 record.
