Knox: Is Ty Lawson A Good Comp For Blazers G Damian Lillard?

33
Bryant Knox of NWSportsBeat.com considers Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose and Memphis Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless as comparable players for Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Damian Lillard before concluding that Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson might be a "more realistic" standard. --------------------------------- To a lot of fans, a realistic prediction for Lillard is Rose or Westbrook—and they might not be wrong. The potential for greatness is there, but until we’ve seen it on the court, a much safer comparison is the Denver Nuggets’ Ty Lawson. Lawson is forming into an All-Star. He’s one of the fastest point guards in the league, his shooting ability is dangerous beyond the arch and his scoring-passing combination is ideal for a point guard carrying the load. Lillard doesn’t have the speed of Lawson, but he certainly has the athleticism to make plays in the open court. ---------------------------------
