How High is the Ceiling for Damian Lillard?

He’s a two-time All-Star for the Blazers. How can he improve even more heading into year six?

NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

James Holas of joins Tara Bowen-Biggs and Dan Marang for this episode of the Blazer's Edge podcast. They discuss James' theory that Damian Lillard is poised for a breakout year which will lead the Portland Trail Blazers to the playoffs.

Along the way they discuss the Cleveland Cavaliers trade with the Boston Celtics that was supposed to send Kyrie Irving to Boston for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Net's 2018 first-round pick.

Where does Portland fall in the Western Conference? Who would be the best match up for Portland in the playoffs?

One correction: Tara mentions what Damian Lillard said about what he learns from watching film. That information came from Lillard’s exit interview, not from his appearance on the BJ and Bucher Podcast (which you should still check out because he says some great things about how Nurkic fits in, playing ball with his cousins, and his AAU team. After you listen to this podcast, of course).

Hear that and more on this week's episode!
