Our man Scott Schroeder was just telling you, Damian Lillard is on his way to being the NBA Summer League MVP in Las Vegas. Which is nice. Come this fall when training camp opens that award will matter about as much as his two Big Sky Player of the Year awards. Still, as Summer League drags on Lillard is one of the bright spots.
Plus, he does things line that to Keith Benson.
Portland may have a real find here. You have to be careful about drawing big conclusions from Summer League, but Lillard has put himself on the “guys we’re going to watch early in the season” list to see how he adjusts.
