Damian Lillard Named NBA Rookie of the Year


In a move that should surprise absolutely nobody, it was announced on Wednesday night that Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard has been named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year after his incredible first year in the league.

From ESPN on Twitter:

Lillard certainly has a bright future ahead of him and is poised for success in the NBA. If this season was any indication, the league has a new star at the point guard position and it is going to be a lot of fun to see how he develops over the next few years.

    Boosh! Lillard had a phenomenal season. The fact he seems to have study knees gives all Blazers fans hope for the future (though the insane amount of minutes he played this year was a bit disconcerting). Still, good job Damian.
