Knox: Damian Lillard Says Anthony Davis Is Rightful ROY Favorite

26
Bryant Knox of BleacherReport.com has a question and answer with Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Damian Lillard. ------------------------------- Why stay so loyal to Weber State even after bigger programs started calling? Because that’s what I come from. I come from a family of hard-working, loyal people, and that’s the reason I went to Weber State. They were hard-working and a family-oriented program, and I knew that I would excel there. If it wasn’t for them, I probably wouldn’t be here because they pushed me so hard and held me to such a high standard that it allowed me to be in a position to make the NBA. I feel like, going to a bigger school, you’re risking losing that type of help and that type of family environment, and you'd be around maybe a lower level of character and people that don’t stand for the same thing. It all worked out the same. I still got to where I wanted to be. I know I’m happy I stayed. Your name is being thrown out there in a lot of circles as the favorite to win the Rookie of the Year. How can you win that award, and then who do you think is the favorite to win it? Well, first of all, I think Anthony Davis is the favorite, and rightfully so. But me, I think I come out and do what I do. I’m a scoring point guard, but I know when to make the right plays, so I know I’ll have assists and I know I’ll score the ball. So I’m just gonna do what I do. It’s just a matter of who gets picked, I guess. So I’m just gonna come out and do my best to perform how I’ve always done. ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
