Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard has been known as a great teammate throughout his career. That impression was confirmed when he was named by Players Voice as a 2017 Teammate of the Year award winner. The award was given to one person on each team, voted on by the players themselves.

The Trail Blazers and their fans will hope that Lillard can use these teammate skills to lead the team on a deep playoff run, but either way, at lest according to his co-workers, he’s a good guy to have around.
