    Damian Lillard: Obviously Where We Aren't Isn't Good Enough To Win Title

    "I mean, we didn't win a championship, so obviously where we are now isn't good enough," Damian Lillard said. "I don't know what a shakeup looks like or what changes will be made or could be made, but obviously as is, it wasn't good enough. We came up short against a team without their starting point guard and shooting guard (Will Barton and Jamal Murray). ... Obviously, where we are isn't good enough to win a championship if it's not good enough to get out of a first-round series with two of their best three or four players not on the floor."

    "For our season to end on our home floor is disappointing. That's as far as I am right now," Lillard said. "I'm not thinking about none of the other s--- like change or whatever, man. We'll see what happens, but I haven't even thought that far out."

    "We didn't make excuses and we still don't make excuses. Disappointing ending, this isn't what we wanted, but we don't hang our heads. Just came up short," Lillard said. "We didn't do what was necessary to win a series and gotta keep fighting, keep working and keep coming back to battle. Regardless of how it ended, we're always going to have our heads held high, have class and go about it like real warriors. We lost, they were the better team, congratulations to them. It's back to the drawing board for us."

    Blazers targeting Jason Kidd I always thought he would be a good hire.

    Stotts is the scapegoat for no D Lillard. Lillard is fantastic on O, but he hardly ever makes any effort on defense.
