Damian Lillard: ‘I’m 10 toes in Rip City’

“Honestly, it doesn’t shift my focus either way,” Lillard said. “During starting lineups, they were booing everybody and then they cheered when I came through. I thought that was funny. That comes with professional sports. It’s fun, it’s a public thing, so I’m not uptight about it or acting like I don’t recognize it. “I know what it is and I know what it’s about. But I’m a Trail Blazer. I appreciate the love. I appreciate the respect that they showed and the desire or whatever but I’m 10 toes in Rip City, and I’ve said that time and time again and tonight I laughed about it during starting lineups but that was that.” – via Tim Bontemps @ ESPN

Billups admitted he heard them, too. “I mean, I wasn’t surprised at all,” Billups said. “When they were saying, ‘We want Lillard,’ I was saying, ‘We do, too.’ “I mean, I understand and I get it. Philly’s got a great fan base, they pull no punches. I’ve always appreciated that about this city.” – via Tim Bontemps @ ESPN
