In the NBA world we live in now, you don’t see many guys like Dame around. He’s a Portland Trailblazer and thats where he wants to be and where he plans to stay. In an era of superstars joining other superstars to chase NBA titles, Lillard has said hell stay where he’s at and create his own legacy.
Damian Lillard has been a star in these league for years now, but for some reason this year it feels like he really belongs among the top players in the NBA. This is going to sound stupid, but this year it really hit me how good he was watching the All Star game. Yes, I know its a meaningless game with not much defence being played if any. This was his fourth All Star game, but this year he was shooting his shots and playing like he does night in night out for this Portland Trailblazer team.
In this NBA, in this crazy era where even the best players in the world are asking for help and more superstars to join them, Dame has stayed put and continues to do his thing night in and night out for Portland. I do get to see a lot more of him being on the West Coast, but its time to give this guy his respect. He is one of the top guards in this league and in my humble opinion is doing it the RIGHT way. Whether he is ever able to win an NBA championship in Portland or even get to a final remains to be seen, but his legacy will live on, very much like the man he knocked out in last nights game. Dame and Westbrook are generational players who will be celebrated long after their careers are over. Lets start giving this guy the respect he deserves now and applaud him for doing it HIS way. Hope y’all are enjoying these playoffs as much as I am. Lets have a hump day y’all.
