Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard is a rarity in the modern NBA: 

a star who has stayed with the same team his whole career. 

This weekend, Lillard raised some eyebrows with his comments 

on the lack of loyalty from players in the league. 

“Something that’s missing in our league, the passion, the pride, not just for the name on the back but the name on the front,"  

Lillard said Saturday, via Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix. 

Not surprisingly, this quote generated plenty of feedback from fans. Some agreed with Lillard,  

but many were quick to point out that he is being compensated handsomely for his loyalty.
