Even since his high school days, Damian Lillard has often been overlooked. He was rated a mere 2-star prospect out of high school, and eventually accepted a scholarship to play for Weber State of the Big Sky Conference. Now, as a member of the Portland Trail Blazers, Lillard is still often overlooked in the discussion regarding the top point guards in the league. Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, and Russell Westbrook receive plenty of attention for their play, and rightfully so. Curry has won a pair of MVPs and championships, Irving has a championship under his belt, and Westbrook is the league’s reigning MVP. Damian Lillard doesn’t have an MVP or any NBA Finals victories on his resume, yet he deserves to be held on the same pedestal as the formerly mentioned.
