Spears: NBA Scout Says Damian Lillard "Can Play Selfish"

27
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that Weber State guard Damian Lillard, who has been linked to the Portland Trail Blazers in numerous mock drafts, is hoping to emerge from a small school and turn into a household name. ------------------------------------- Lillard was rarely shown on television, but NBA scouts certainly know him. An Eastern Conference scout projects him to be selected between Nos. 10-20. A Western Conference scout likened him to a young Mo Williams. "He’s a confident and aggressive scorer with no conscience," one East scout said. "He’s more of a volume streaky scorer. At times he can play selfish in terms of making sure his teammates are involved." Lillard says his toughness comes from growing up in Oakland, which has produced several NBA players in Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Brian Shaw, J.R. Rider and House. ------------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
