Damian Lillard should study Andre Miller

"Lillard already plays beyond his years with skill, feel and a terrific confidence. But while his athletic gifts are strong, they are not elite. So learning the nuances of point-guard play from someone like Miller can help him reach his high ceiling. Miller is the best lob passer (with apologies to Chris Paul) and hit-ahead guard in the game. He reads the court horizontally and in two dimensions vertically -- down the floor and up in the air, creating buckets for teammates even when the defense thinks they are in solid position. Getting points for your team when a lesser passer wouldn't is what separates great guards from good ones. Lillard, with those abilities, would seem to be an All-Star lock down the road. Learning to read the game would also help him play more efficiently and save energy in the process -- part of the reason why Miller is still playing so well at 37 years of age."
