Former Weber State Wildcat Damian Lillard may participate in 5 events during All-Star Weekend
Want to see Damian Lillard during the NBA's All-Star Weekend in New Orleans? You are in luck because there's a good possiblitiy he will participate in all the events. Five to be exact.
He has already been named to the Rising Stars Challenge as a top second-year player in the NBA. He'll also defend the Skills Challenge title he won as a rookie. Not to mention that he's also been named as a reserve on the Western Conference team for the All-Star game.
Not everyone is excited, though. The Portland Oregonian's John Canzano is worried the blitz will wear out the former Weber State standout. Canzano says he "can't decide if this five-event frenzy is a terrible idea, or just a lousy one."
Lillard's agent, Aaron Goodwin, rebuts that idea in another Oregonian story, saying that Lillard is used to playing several games a day from his days as an AUU baller.
The five events would also allow Lillard to show off his new Adidas Crazyquick 2 sneakers that he and John Wall will wear during the game.
