 LeBron agrees with everyone else: Damian Lillard is Rookie of the Year
Thumbs up topic by T.O.N.Y. - 01-10-2013, 09:51 AM - Boxden > BX SportsCenter





Theres a little more than half a season to go, so nothing is set in stone.

But the one post-season award that seems most set is Damian Lillard winning the Rookie of the Year. Dont take my word for it, ask LeBron James, whose Heat face Lillard and the Blazers on Thursday night. From the Oregonian:

LeBron James dubbed Lillard the Rookie of the Year.

Hes never out of his comfort zone, James said of Lillard Wednesday. Hes never too fast; hes never too slow. He plays in his own lane.

Lillard has stepped into the starting point guard role in Portland, averaging 18.2 points and 6.5 a$sists per game, while shooting 35.4 percent from three. Whats more, he has stepped into a real leadership role on the Blazers, a guy his teammates clearly trust and someone who has knocked down clutch shots for them.

That said, his defense has been atrocious. Id say the Heat can exploit that, but then again Ive seen their point guards.

Davis is clearly the best rookie but Lillard should win ROY. He's older and less raw offensively. He's horrendous on defense though and I find it funny that everyone seems to look past that because of his flashy stats. He'll get better though.

His defense is pretty bad but its already getting better. He's pretty good in straight up one on one situations, he just sucks on pick and roll D

i dont know many PG's who came in year one starting with stellar defense, so i wouldn't necessarily attack Lillard for that. That can soley be attributed to still adjusting to game speed. It's obviously easier to adapt on offense in getting yours, than it is to come in day 1 playing good defense against the greatest players in the world. Just doesn't happen that way, ESPECIALLY if you weren't known as a defender in college.

We'll see. He's starting to hit the Rookie wall now. If someone can step up and shine I'm sure he'll lose.

All he does is chuck up shots.

Alexey Shved is the true ROTY and anyone who disagrees is a RACIST.
