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 Caviness
Rodney Caviness Pred 3 dnevi
@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 .....

It doesn't and shouldn't matter where he plays he's in the NBA and going at ALL of the elite NBA players and holding it down, the best NBA player ( whoever you think it is ) holds Dame in the highest regard and knows that they can't sleep on Dame . Dame is a threat to any and everybody he plays against and he doesn't get the respect and credit he deserves.
