Hey rookie, welcome to the NBA.
Damian Lillard is having about as good a rookie year as one could hope, although defense has not exactly been his strong side of the ball. To put it kindly.
But this isn’t fair, because Kyrie Irving abuses a lot of people and makes them look bad. The rookie just got the worst of it on this play.
Just the last Rookie of the Year showing something to the likely next Rookie of the Year.
