Damian Lillard: 'I'm not joining nobody' like Kevin Durant did, unless...

Kevin Durant. LeBron James. Chris Paul. Paul George. LaMarcus Aldridge. Kyrie Irving. Gordon Hayward.

Those just some of the superstars to change teams in the last few years in pursuit of a championship.

But don't expect Damian Lillard to add his name to that list.

While speaking on the latest episode of Complex's Everyday Struggle, the Blazers point guard was asked about the possibility of joining up with other stars to try to win a title.

"I mean, like I said about [former Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge], I wouldn't have done it. For me, I'm not joining nobody," Lillard said.

When it was brought up that he'd join LeBron if given the chance, Lillard responded by saying this: "I'm not joining nobody. I would not win a championship before I go and team up and do all that. Unless it was something I couldn't control."

A hypothetical scenario was posed to Lillard: Let's say you're 34 years old (Lillard is currently 27 years old) and you had the chance to join two of your superstar friends on another team. You still wouldn't do it?

"I’m saying this because this is how I feel, not how I feel at the moment. That’s just how I feel about it. I think if that’s what somebody wants to do, I’m not mad at them for doing it. I’m just telling you what I’m not going to do. That ain’t how we get down," Lillard responded.

To wrap up the topic, Lillard was asked if he holds it against any player that does decide to team up with other superstars.

"Nah, if it make them feel good, if they comfortable doing it, then do you," Lillard said.

Blazers: Damian Lillard's more Oakland than the Warriors

The Warriors' new alternate jerseys this upcoming season will honor Oakland with "The Town" across their chest. But if you ask the Blazers, the Warriors have no real love for The Town. 

On Sunday, the Blazers proclaimed their own Damian Lillard is more Oakland than the Warriors because of the team's future move to San Francisco. 

Lillard grew up in Oakland where he starred at Oakland High School and earned a scholarship to play at Weber State University. 

Starting in the 2019-20 season, the Warriors are set to play in San Francisco at the Chase Center. The Warriors started as a franchise in Philadelphia from 1946-1962 before moving to San Francisco from 1962-1971.

Ever since the 1971 season, the Warriors' home has been Oakland.

Asked about new Warriors jersey, Damian Lillard throws shade at current uni

On Friday night, the NBA and Nike unveiled the new 'Statement' alternate uniforms for all 30 teams.

Kevin Durant and the Warriors showed off their new 'The Town' jerseys that they are expected to wear for 10 home games during the 2017-18 season.

One competitor - and Oakland-native - offered his opinion on the new design.

Trail Blazers' point guard Damian Lillard was asked by a fan on Thursday what he thought of the Warriors finally paying respect to to Oakland.

'Better than the bridge,' Lillard quipped in response.

The Warriors' current primary logo features the new Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge.
