Thank you for the kind words Damian! You're great to have as an unofficial
ambassador for Utah and Weber State! Keep it up and you will have wonderful NBA
success over the years. We will always root for you.
Damian is a basketball stud. From what I have seen and heard he is a good guy
too. I can't believe all the articles about Jimmer when by far the best
basketball player of this era to come out of a Utah College is Damian Lillard
(NBA rookie of the year is no chump accomplishment). Also, he has stayed close
to Weber State in heart and mind and Weber State nation continues embrace him
(it's cool situation). Selfishly I wish he played for the Jazz. For his
sake, I am glad he is in a better situation (Portland) as the Jazz seem to be a
bit of a lost cause at the moment (there is always next year). I got to give
Weber State credit, they produce some good BBall players. I think they gave AZ
a scare towards the end of the NCAA tourney game (only if Weber had started
their comeback 5 minutes sooner).
"Lillard's such a great ambassador for Utah."That's why Deseret News needs to start writing "Lillard Watch"
articles. Best player to ever come out of the state.
@UteologyYou mean apart from Andre Miller. Why are we so quick to
discount a player who is in the top 10 all-time in assists and has only missed 3
games in 14 years? He is a future hall of famer and probably one of the top 25
point guards ever, but suddenly Damian Lillard is the best player to come out of
the state? It makes no sense. Lillard may someday deserve to be in that
conversation, but he's only in his third year!
Best player ever? He could be but I would say Ainge and Chambers have the edge
and Miller right there as well.
