  • Big fan of Damian Lillard ... His been destroying the League since 2012 Pluse I don't think he even reach his prime yet biggest clutch player I ever seen. his percentages is out this world..... Deffilty Mvp run up for real !!!! 💯 game ⌚

    vbddfy euuytvbddfy euuytPrije 10 dana
  • Finally Stephen A and others are acknowledging the truth...That Damian Lillard is the best PG in the NBA and probably has been for the last 2 or 3 years..(Steph did not play last year..and Kyre has too many personal issues (although he and Damian are my favorite players)

    Rodney CavinessRodney CavinessPrije 10 dana
    • @Smd_ thats your opinion..I respect that..but way better is an overstatement..I might give Steph the edge too...but its always been close..if you've been really following Dames career he has always been top 3 gaurd in the league..since his rookie year when he won Rookie Of The Year He plays in Portland so he doesn't get the recognition as players in the bigger markets..but Damian has outplayed Steph in several matchups..and vice versa its about even if you look at their matchup stats, its just that Steph has always had a much better team...when you have great teammates who can shoot like Klay and KD, .it makes it alot easier for Steph to get open looks..Steph rarely gets double teamed when they matchup because he has so many shooters around him...Dame always get double teamed in playoffs. In fact in Stephs first finals without KD he played poorly and Iggy took home the finals MVP, then against Cleveland Kyre ...out played him..and he had a marginal series performance...Kyre Dame and Steph are my top 3 players but if...you understanding the X O's of the game Steph clearly has a better advantage in the system he plays..just being honest

      Rodney CavinessRodney CavinessPrije 2 dana
    • @Rodney Caviness Steph always outplayed dame in every matchup even without kd. It should be no debate at all Curry is way better in my opinion

      Smd_Smd_Prije 2 dana
    • @Smd_ True but ..over the last 3 years still debatable..when you consider the roster makeup Steph has by comparison...Dame would have just as many rings as Steph if he played with KD, Klay and Drammond, his best teammate is a very good but inconsistent and always injured CJ (not nearly on the level of KD and Klay)

      Rodney CavinessRodney CavinessPrije 2 dana
    • he was only the best pg last year when curry didn’t play.

      Smd_Smd_Prije 2 dana
    • @vbddfy euuyt He does but he does make a valid point about market..Portland is not the same market as NY, LA , Golden State, Miami etc...so you don't hear about them that much and they get less TV time than the big markets..but of course the same can be said for OKC..but still Westbrooks gets alot of press and he's no where close to Dame. Damian is the rel deal and has been for long time...Portland has always been an ignored market even when Walton won the Chip ..and as good as Drexler was..he didn't get the coverage..he was just considered a west coast version of MJ and probably the most underrated player before his tragic career ending illness Brandon Roy..didn't get the props he deserved either

  • Dame Dollar been my favorite since i first heard him slaughter Shaq on the mic , and then I started to watch his highlights and I was just gone . Try to get a Portland jersey shipped to Soweto South Africa in February 2020 and not because i stay there No No No , i get my traffic fines sent there somehow because the government is not interested that sharing a highway isn't sharing an area code . I digress , got the jersey after a year and we locked up again and it's 2am and I'm here claiming to be a life long fan when i barely got my jersey .....

Dame is a threat to any and everybody he plays against and he doesn't get the respect and credit he deserves.
