The Portland Trail Blazers have a representative in the NBA All-Star Game, and it’s Damian Lillard once again. The 6-2 guard from Weber State has been chosen to represent his team for the seventh time in his career.

Shortly after the Blazers scoring leader and end-of-game specialist was selected, teammate Josh Hart tweeted his congratulations and said nobody was more deserving. Lillard made it a point to thank Hart for recognizing the achievement.

Lillard is averaging 30.6 points per game this season. He is also averaging 7.4 assists and 4.1 rebounds while playing 39 games for the Blazers. Lillard has been especially hot in recent games. He has scored 42 points in each of his last two games against the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies. Lillard also scored 60 points in a January 25 game against the Utah Jazz.

“Dame Time” is in his 11th year with the Blazers and he is averaging 24.9 points, 6.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game throughout his career. Lillard is known as one of the best long-distance shooters in the league, and he is often at his most dangerous when the game is on the line.
