Shaw: Blazers G Damian Lillard Says "I Can Take Steve Nash"

148
Mitch Shaw of the Standard-Examiner reports that Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is confident heading into his team's season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers. -------------------------------- "I want to be rookie of the year," he said. "I want to be an All-Star in the next few years, and after that, I want to be in the Olympics in 2016." "I think I can take Steve Nash," a joking Lillard said. "I got Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and Tony Parker after that, so I might have some rough nights with them. But Steve Nash, I think I got him." -------------------------------- Lillard also is quoted as saying that his college coach's best advice was that it's impossible to please everybody. Update: A person present at the autograph signing who heard the comments about Nash stressed that Lillard made them in a joking manner and with a "I can hold my own" sentiment and that this wasn't meant as a "challenge" to the Lakers guard. Lillard, who has drawn comparisons to a woman's swimsuit, was speaking at an autograph signing in Utah. More quotes here. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
