Live broadcast on July 8 Today, Trail Blazers star Lillard is a guest talk show, he talked about a number of topics in the show.
Yesterday, the Blazers officially signed a four-year, $194 million super-advance early contract renewal with Lillard, which will take effect from the 21-22 season. The host first congratulated Lillard on winning the big contract and asking him how he felt at the moment. Lillard said: "What I want to say is that from the moment I joined the alliance, I never considered the contract. I tried not because I wanted to get a big contract. I just love the sport, this I have reached this level now, and the team thinks that I deserve it, so everything is in order."
"I mean, people will only have something to gain after they have paid for it, either early or late, but they will come. Then, I want to say that I am very happy, because this is really a big sum (laughs). Lillard added.
The host then asked if Lillard had confidence in the achievements of the Trail Blazers in the coming year after major changes in the Western teams. Lillard said: "There are two more super teams in the West, but I still have confidence in my team. We also got a very big big man (referring to Whiteside). Last year, the core structure of the team was basically No change. We were the last year's Western Conference team, so why should we look down on ourselves? The stronger the opponent, the more excited I am. I like the feeling of competition and challenge."
When talking about Paul George and the small card joining the Clippers, Lillard said with a smile: "Do you know, when my cousin told me this news, I thought it was fake news. He told me George to go to the Clippers. And then rushed over and said that Leonard also went. My first reaction was 'That's not true.' I was swimming when I heard the news, I immediately climbed out to see the phone. When I confirmed, I only had to sigh 'This is really a big news, these guys have made a big deal.'"
