“I would like to win a championship as bad as anybody, but because of who I am, I’d get a lot more satisfaction if I got it the hard way,” Lillard says.
“If I can’t figure it out here and I never win one, I can live with the effort I put into it. I can live with it maybe not happening for me.
“I’m going to roll with this team regardless of what people may feel about our chances. I’m going to live and die with this.”
