Damian Lillard’s status with the Portland Trail Blazers remains something of a curiosity

with many questioning his long-term commitment if the organization is not a contender. 

Whether he meant to or not, Lillard added fuel to that fire with his social media activity on Saturday.

Lillard posted a video to his Instagram story that included a message that read “loyalty has an expiration date.”

Lillard himself endorsed the sentiment as a “hard truth” in his caption.

Lillard warning the Blazers that at a certain point he will have to consider whether Portland is where he is best positioned to win a championship. 

As has been the case all along, Lillard seems to want to win a title in Portland. 

 He has frequently sent the message, however, that he needs to see the organization make the moves to make that possible.
