We all know Damian Lillard as the brilliant point guard of the Portland Trail Blazers. His performances on court are impressive and he is considered to be one of the best clutch players in the league. We want to give you a better understanding of Damian Lillard as a ball player as well as the person beyond the athlete.
On his YouTube channel he documented his way to professional basketball with a video series called “License to Lillard” in which he talks about his College career and his motivation to reach the top of his game.
License to Lillard
In his still young career Dame managed to win the Rookie of the Year 2013 award and can already call himself a two-time All-Star. Since his NBA debut in 2012 he started in 275 consecutive games until December 2015 when he missed just one game because of a sore plantar fascia (google that only when you’re not eating).
He wants to play every single game and he wants to win every single game. When the seconds are winding down and the game is close you want him to hold the ball in his hands to take the last shot. And he will make it because he is a beast in the clutch! You don’t believe it? Watch Lillard hitting game winners in the following videos.
