Damian Lillard Has ‘Too Much Pride’ to Join a Super Team

by October 04, 2016

Damian Lillard has nothing against so-called super teams, but says he’s too competitive and prideful to ever join one.

Lillard, 26, thinks playing for a stacked squad increases the pressure to win.

The two-time All-Star PG adds that beating a “monster” makes the challenge that much more enjoyable.

Per SiriusXM NBA Radio (via reddit):

“I wouldn’t [join a super team]. I might have too much pride for that or be too much of a competitor where I couldn’t bring myself to do it, but it also makes it more fun.


“You get to take a monster down and that’s always fun.”
