As a rookie, Lillard averaged around 18 points a game, which made him the NBA rookie of the year. Throughout his growing career, he has made plays that left everybody stunned, and thinking of the future of basketball. Lillard not only has been able to transform himself into one of the best point guards in the world, but has also become the face of the Portland Trail Blazers franchise, as success from the team is almost a certain in the future.
This year, his performance mainly towards the fourth quarter has been a display of greatness. Many say that Lillard is perhaps the most clutch player in the NBA as of right now. His game winners from last year during the regular season and playoffs prove this, as well as his 2 consecutive 40 point performances against the Spurs and Thunder this year, in which the game tying/winning shots were taken by Lillard himself.
Damian Lillard is a legend in the making. His accomplishments in his career as of right now puts him with the names of legends such as Oscar Robertson, and Allen Iverson. For a player like him with only 3 years of experience in the league, the sky’s the limit for Damian, as well as the Blazer’s organization.
