Things to Know


The big shot with a big shot.

Damian Lillard has become an iconic player in the Portland Trail Blazers' history beginning with his Rookie of the Year season in 2012-13. Since then, he has taken the Blazers to a Western Conference finals, been an All-NBA and All-Star performer and is closing in on the franchise's all-time scoring mark and other records in short order.

Lillard started all 82 games during his rookie season en route to winning Rookie of the Year with averages of 19.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game. He was the fourth unanimous Rookie of the Year award winner in NBA history, joining Blake Griffin, David Robinson and Ralph Sampson.

Career
He didn’t miss a game (or start) for the Blazers throughout his first three seasons in the league. Lillard played 275 straight games before missing his first contest on Dec. 21, 2015 due to a minor foot injury.

Lillard made his first All-Star team in 2014 and became the first player to compete in every event during All-Star weekend (Rising Stars, Skills, 3-Point, Slam Dunk and the All-Star Game). He averaged 20.7 ppg that season, his first of eight straight seasons with a scoring average over 20 ppg.

Lillard earned the nickname ‘Dame Time’ due to his strong performance in the clutch. Twice he has hit the ultimate dagger — a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to eliminate the opponent from the playoffs. He did it against the Rockets in Game 6 of the 2014 first round and against the Thunder in Game 5 of the 2019 first round.

He’s the Blazers second all-time leading scorer, trailing Clyde Drexler by 1,225 points entering the 2021-22 season.

A leader on and off the court, Lillard was awarded the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award in 2019 and the NBA Teammate of the Year award in 2021.
