It’s a cryptic message that many Lakers fans are running with the notion Lillard is open to a move. Beyond that, the post builds on the buzz that arose after Lillard and LeBron James embraced during the Sparks game. There is a strong level of mutual respect between the stars, which only adds to the situation. At the same, it may be Lillard just suggesting he shows recognition to all his NBA colleagues.
