    You must have missed the recent spurt in DNews pieces about Lillard. And, yes, he may well be the best Utah has produced

    Lillard has proven to be a thousand times more valuable than Fredette, and hands down, in his first two years as a pro, has already surpassed the best that any other school in Utah has produced, including Miller. Case in point, how many unanimous rookies of the year has this state had? 1. How many guys made the All-Star team in their sophomore season? 1. How many guys have hit arguably the biggest shot in the history of a NBA franchise? Lillard is the only one. It's ridiculous how much respect he get's nationally, and how disregarded he is locally. It's really shameful, all cause he didn't go to the U or BYU. The best player Utah has ever produced, went to Weber State.

    Awesome player...all-around skills, good to see a team-oriented player have success. Go Lillard!

    What a great game this was. Clutch plays by both teams, very well played.

    The Spurs-Mavericks games have also been very well played.

    By contrast, I'm watching Game 7 of the Pacers-Hawks...stagnant offense, poor shooting...looks like a JV game. The East is horrible.

    I can still see Jimmer finding a place on Trailblazers team. And not in coming off of the bench for long, either. Portland won't be able to keep what they've got too much longer. As the payroll expands to satisfy the starters, they'll have to weed out the bench, removing those that don't produce. That's where Jimmer comes in. Stotts should relish the idea of having a great shooter on the second squad. For sure, he'd know exactly how to get the most out of him. He does it all of the time with the team that he's got!

    Sweater & Chris B-

    Is that "weak tea" the best you've got? In the "Go" portion only 1/3 is devoted to the Utes. Does that mean you are an alum of Weber State?

    I've been impressed with Lillard ever since his last game vs. BYU. Weber State got slaughtered, but no one could stop Lillard. It has been fun to watch him progress and achieve at the next level.

    He is a special player. What a season he has had

    I have to hand it to byu fans, they told us 5 years ago there was a point guard playing in Utah that would be a star in the nba. They were right. He may even go on to have a career as incredible an Andre miller, top 10 in assists in the history of the league!

    Go utes!
    Go weber state
    Go Damian!

    I just heard that Portland is talking to Chicago about trading Damian for Jimmer...

    The deal may not go through however because Chicago is demanding a 2nd player or a future pick?

    I guess Portland must have a few opponents they really want to Jimmer...

    Or something! Go Cougs
