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.
- Kyrie Irving out for Game 2 vs. Hawks 3
- PBT Extra: Klay Thompson’s done well, but Warriors should throw other defenders at James Harden, too 4
- PBT Extra: Give Warriors defense some credit for stop of Harden on last play 0
- Lakers general manager says Kobe Bryant told him next season will be Kobe’s last with Lakers 15
- For two games James Harden has been brilliant, but that’s not what anybody is talking about 25
- Warriors survive James Harden in Game 2, take 2-0 lead in Western Conference finals 15
- PBT Extra: No DeMarre Carroll leaves Hawks in tough spot 3
- PBT Extra: J.R. makes case for hot hand theory, is loved in Cleveland 7
