Damian Lillard has committed on playing for Team USA and will participate in 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

After getting eliminated in the first round of Western Conference playoffs by an injured Denver Nuggets team, Lillard has been surrounded by trade rumors and reports about him being disgruntled in Portland's management.

The Blazers' superstar revealed that he just can't bring himself to watch the Finals as he speaks to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

"I haven't really watched the games except for a quarter here and there. I literally watched the last eight minutes the other night ... It's like you almost get jealous. Like, damn, I'm enjoying my experience with Team USA, but I'd rather be one of the teams still playing."

Lillard already denied the trade rumors and said that he hasn't decide on his future yet.
