This kid has balls the size of bowling balls, no fear in his game. Portland beat the Spurs tonight Lillard was the leading scorer. Here is his line:
40min
11-22 fg
29 pts
7 reb
6 ast
2 to

Liilard was the 6th pick in the draft.

The Blazers have pretty good talent scout except when it comes to franchise changing players.

Just realizing that now?

How about the two games where he torched the Rockets in crunch time?

I don't get the Derrick Rose comparisons though. He's not like Derrick Rose at all.

There's really no doubt this was the player Morey was targeting if we could had acquired that 5th pick if Robinson didn't fall.

How do you know? The buzz on these forums was Drummond.

He's a less selfish version of Rose.

He's not even close to being as athletic as Rose to be compared to him IMO.

He has to work on his finishing and get to the FT line more often. But he is the best pure shooter PG not named Stephen Curry.

Here's a fun player to compare, both for their rookie years, at the same of 22.

Base stats
Player A: 18.0ppg/5.3rpg/6.6apg playing 36.1mpg
Lillard: 18.4ppg/3.2rpg/6.2apg playing 38.2mpg

Shooting%
Player A: 44.5%/34.5%3pt/54.3%TS
Lillard: 42.1%/36.7%3pt/54.5%TS

Team record
Player A: 41%
Portland right now: 42%

Hint: Player A was a former Rocket. So it should be an easy guess for most Rockets fans.

Did you check his combine measurements? Huge numbers, not really bad compared to Rose.

Yep, heard the Francis comparison before and it's a good one.

First name off the top of my head, actually. And then looked up the stats and realized how eerily similar they are as rookies. Actually, surprised me that Francis was so old when he entered. I've always thought of him as one of those underclassmen guys.
