Video proof Damian Lillard can dunk

Dec 21, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

Damian Lillard — the guy well out in front of the pack in the Rookie of the Year race — can do a lot. Great court vision, can shoot with range, has shown poise at the end of games, has good size and is learning how to defend at an NBA level…

And dunk.

He’s not thought of as much of a dunker but he threw this one down. Hard. And joked about it after the game saying basically “I told you I can dunk.”

He finished with 12 points, 10 assists and the Blazers got the win thanks to the Nuggets futility.

    That defense split as if Lilliard was Moses himself.

    If that were my team, I’d clobber him. No way a rookie PG is coming down right through the lane and dunking the ball. It’s not like there aren’t defenders who can get in the way.

    The Blazers look to have a pretty decent future. Especially since they just blew it up just last season. The bench is wicked horrible, but then again, who am I talk about bad benches (lol :-( ). J.J. Hickson should be up there in consideration for most improved player of the year, and at times has looked better then Aldrige.
