Any notice how awesome Lillard is at finishing now?

If I recall Lillard was finishing at the rim less than 40% of the time around Nov!! It was terrible. Now that % has jumped like 10 points!! I don't mean lately, I mean his total percentage is...

CJ playing 5 on 5!

Looks like 3J is back in action. Hoping to see this guy soon. Hopefully he'll get some garbage time against OKC when we are up by 30 at the half.

Lillards' Bad Defense? Not really THAT bad

1

Now we all know Lillard plays poor PnR defense. His technique isn't very mature yet. BUT THE DUDE TRIES HARD...like real hard while shouldering a massive portion of our offense, handling the ball and being an all around brass-balled-boss. Exhibit A: James Harden. Terrible defender. This is one of many examples of Hardens' bad defense and general web content related to exactly this. What this tells me is that we have a lot to be thankful for regarding our young PG and his imperfect defense.

Robin Lopez - Top 5 Rim Protecting Center

Rim Protection Stats If you told me we were going to get a top 10 rim protector for 2nd round picks, I would have laughed at you but been excited. If you told me we were going to get a top 5...

Dame - "Sir Clutch"

+

Damian is the most clutch player in the NBA right now. Look at poor Irving here? Irving gets all the highlights but down the stretch you'd be a fool to pass him the ball instead of Lillard. Is it time to start saying Dame is better than Kyrie? I think so. Kyrie *might* more talent but his shot selection and dumb ISO's aren't great.

Lillard Top 5 PG? (All knees jerked at once last night at ESPN)

Yeah, George Karl is a smart dude. Not just a pundit. Like what he has to say!

Lillard #1 Soph

1

Just like last year, Davis struggles with boo-boos and Lillard remains an andriod while running the NBA's most efficient offense and putting up 20 and 6.

Timberwolves loose again

15

Yea. Lets hope ESPN finally gets off this teams jock for once. They are awful and yet get so much press. Even ranked above the majestic Trail Blazers at one point. **NEWS FLASH** Love throws a pass!!!!! . Their PF is also overrated and even at his best is not the best in the league. He rebounds and chucks. That is it my friends.

Whats eating Damian Lillard?

Our boy Lillard seems to be playing different this year. He seems to have drained out some of the Mamba blood in him which has left us with an interesting player. Obviously he has improved and...

New LMA?

I'll admit that I have been hating on LMA's "jumpshot game only" game for a long time. I hate it, it comes across as "Look I don't have to do the dirty work and will just pop shots out here". ...

Start CJ over Matthews

I'm interested in us starting CJ. Lillard can't be the only guy that can dribble on the court with our Jersey on. I think Matthews defense is over rated and he doesn't work off the ball well...
