Damian Lillard Sinks Game-Winning Jumper vs Hornets (VIDEO)

Early Rookie of the Year favorite?

Pretty rare that a team is willing to put its fate into the hands of a rookie, but the Portland Trail Blazers don’t seem to mind doing so—and for good reason. Watch Damian Lillard, potential ROY candidate, bury the Hornets in the clip above.

    Showcasing why he is a better ROY candidate over Anthony Davis. Dame is money.

    A young Gilbert Arenas. Expect the same stats Gil put up in his prime in about 3 or 4 years.

    Damn, look at Batum just walking off. Maybe I’m looking too into it.
    ANWAYS, THAT WAS AN INSANE SHOT BY LILLARD. While I don’t think he’s ROY, he still would be in many other draft classes. Absolutely great at the point guard spot.

    This was a great shot by Lillard which shows why he is a CANDIDATE (not the sure fire winner) of the ROY race. But the fact that this game was so close tells me that Anthony Davis should have started. There is something wrong IN PRINCIPLE when Rivers start but AD doesn’t. But anyway, Lillard has been a beast all season so far, but so has AD (when not injured). This was a very…interesting game! LOL.

    I see the similarities but I don’t know about that now, you see 30 and 7 from him?
