Former Weber State guard Damian Lillard makes a fan's night
Tom Smart, Deseret News
Damian Lillard proved he is a man of his word Wednesday.
Lillard just wanted to shop in peace, but that is easier said than done when you are the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year.
Siros Ardestani, a fan of the Portland guard, stopped him and asked if he had a minute for a photo. Lillard rejected his photo op request and told him another time would be better.
Ardestani, took the rejection in stride and after Lillard turned to Twitter to voice his apology, Ardestani publically accepted without expecting anything more from his basketball idol.
But Lillard didn't stop with a single apology.
