Before the Oscar festivities get underway Sunday evening, Blazer’s Edge is asking its readers to participate in a list of Blazers-themed awards. Each category will include three nominees and a brief list of accolades.

Outstanding Player

Damian Lillard | 29.8 PTS | 7.9 AST

Could it be anyone else? In the face of adversity, Lillard’s production has kept the Blazers in the postseason chase. He is averaging career-highs in both points and rebounds.

CJ McCollum | 21.4 PTS | 3.8 AST

Like Lillard, to a lesser degree, McCollum is tasked with carrying a larger workload for the injury-depleted Blazers.

Hassan Whiteside | 15.8 PTS | 14.1 REB

It hasn’t always been pretty, but Whiteside’s numbers are staggering. Portland’s recent resurgence has coincided with Whiteside’s impactful play over the last month.
