SLAM Online: Damian Lillard (Feb 28,2012)

+

It's an older article that I hadn't seen on here before, but it has some excellent info about Lillard. He scores, he dishes (4.1 apg), he defends (1.4 spg) and he leads. Witness the career-high 41 points he dropped on San Jose State during a double-overtime win, 91-89, on December 3. Lillard, who drilled six three-pointers during the victory, stated after the game that he knew he had to be "The Man" for his team to come out on top. He reflected on that comment. "That’s my role on this team is to lead," said Lillard, a native of Oakland, Calif. "Guys listen to me and I’ve been around here as long as anybody." The more I read about this kid, the more I want him for our team. Checkout the YouTube videos that are linked in the article, and you'll be a believer to.
