Damian Lillard says he wanted to “spark that urgency” in Blazers owner Paul Allen during a one-on-one meeting last month.

In an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, Lillard said that without an urgency to improve, “then youโ€™re just going out there playing” (starting at 1:47):

โ€œIt was just me showing urgency, like, spark that urgency… figure out, OK, what do we have to do? Weโ€™re a 5-, 6-seed. What do we have to do to make the jump?

โ€œIf you donโ€™t have a line of communication with people who can make the changes or the people who can make impactful things happening for the better, then youโ€™re just going out there playing.โ€
