The exclusive company Lillard joins in this feat are all terrific basketball players who transformed the game. LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Durant are surely bound to be headed to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame when they decide to hang up their sneakers.
While Lillard is still far from calling it quits on his career, he’s not having a great time, either. The Blazers are mightily struggling in the Western Conference, and his team finds it hard to but a win no matter what they do. Fortunately for them, Lillard is playing fantastic basketball. He’s averaging 26.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 7.6 assists on 44% shooting. He and CJ McCollum are the only reasons why the Blazers aren’t fighting the Golden State Warriors for the title of worst team in the association.
They, unfortunately, come short against the Dallas Mavericks, but Dame Time will continue on for Portland. As long as Lillard plays top basketball, they still have a chance of making a deep run in the playoffs.
