"Just watching from the outside, you see how easy [James] makes the game for everybody else," Lillard said. "I'm not sure what it's like playing with LeBron the person, but the player ... I don't see why anybody wouldn't want to play with him."
"I think about when the Pistons were just beating up on Jordan and kicking his butt every year and he had to get through them if he wanted to get to where he wanted to get to," Lillard said. "That's just what it is because they (the Warriors) are going to be there, they're going to be there every year and we have to look at that and understand that we have to be better, we have to go get better and come back better as a group if we want to move past them."
