    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.
