A Little Perspective

DAMIAN LILLARD 
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS
 
This dude just signed a 4-year $198,000,000 with the Trailblazers.  An All Star player, but dang.  Combined with his current deal it becomes a 6 year $258,000,00 deal.
 
Go get your money Grady.  Be fair, but you’ve earned it.  His 5 year, $85,000,000 looks like a popcorn fart compared to Lillard

Damian Lillard is a superstar who has shoe deals through Adidas. He’s also easily a top 4 PG in the league and arguably a top 10 player. He’s the face of that franchise. Most casual sports fans don’t even know who Grady Jarrett is 

Volume shooting pg’s have never been my preference. Taking 20 shoots and shooting 42% with 6 apg doesn’t scream $50,000,000 a year.  But they can’t let him leave so it is what it is.

To me he is an All Star, top 20 player in the NBA which is incredible.   But I am still taking Curry, Irving, Westbrook Paul is a wash over Lillard.

And if I could take Lillard or Young I am taking Trae in a second.

You have clearly not watched Lillard much.

I have no idea who Damian Lillard is, and I'm not joking. This is basketball, right? I mean I know there are other sports than football, but I just don't care, so know I have no idea who any basketball players forward from Shaq are.....

Kobe too. But the most famous football player probably doesn't have 1/8 of the popularity of a LeBron James or even Jordan to this day around the world.

The QB's might give the 1/8th a challenge. Certainly not as famous but somebody like Peyton has 'some' international stardom.

Definitely not Curry or Kyrie. Absolutely over Trae and Westbrook. No question 

You are taking a dude about to turn 29 over a 20 year old who is a better version of Lillard?  Trae at least fulfills the primary role of a pg, distributing the basketball.

Lillard is a more well rounded player at the moment...but a year or two from now Trae will be past him IMO

Chris Paul is still a better PG.  He gives you much better defense, 20 points, 10 assists on 5 less shots and a higher shooting percentage.

Westbrook has more skill by far.  Reduced his shots per game yet still averaged a triple double again this year.

Bottom Line, they are all good.  I’ll keep Trae and you can have Lillard.

Lol, you are such a homer sometimes. Saying that you’d take Trae Young over Damian Lillard is like saying you’d take Baker Mayfield over Matt Ryan. And I know you of all people would be jumping through hoops to call out the poster who makes that statement

I've heard the name, I know he's a basketball player, no idea what team he plays on though. The year they let the player get away with choking the coach, I think the player was Sprewell? or something like that, and the team was maybe seattle? not sure though, because basketball has never really been anything to me, but that year, I said, yeah, I'm done even caring what little I do
