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:
THIS JUST IN: Damian Lillard has been named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year. The Blazer’s PG averaged 19 PPG and 6.5 APG this season.

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.
