    Finally Stephen A and others are acknowledging the truth...That Damian Lillard is the best PG in the NBA and probably has been for the last 2 or 3 years..(Steph did not play last year..and Kyre has too many personal issues (although he and Damian are my favorite players)

      @Smd_ True but ..over the last 3 years still debatable..when you consider the roster makeup Steph has by comparison...Dame would have just as many rings as Steph if he played with KD, Klay and Drammond, his best teammate is a very good but inconsistent and always injured CJ (not nearly on the level of KD and Klay)

      @vbddfy euuyt He does but he does make a valid point about market..Portland is not the same market as NY, LA , Golden State, Miami etc...so you don't hear about them that much and they get less TV time than the big markets..but of course the same can be said for OKC..but still Westbrooks gets alot of press and he's no where close to Dame. Damian is the rel deal and has been for long time...Portland has always been an ignored market even when Walton won the Chip ..and as good as Drexler was..he didn't get the coverage..he was just considered a west coast version of MJ and probably the most underrated player before his tragic career ending illness Brandon Roy..didn't get the props he deserved either

    Dame Dollar been my favorite since i first heard him slaughter Shaq on the mic , and then I started to watch his highlights and I was just gone . Try to get a Portland jersey shipped to Soweto South Africa in February 2020 and not because i stay there No No No , i get my traffic fines sent there somehow because the government is not interested that sharing a highway isn't sharing an area code . I digress , got the jersey after a year and we locked up again and it's 2am and I'm here claiming to be a life long fan when i barely got my jersey .....
