VIDEO: Damian Lillard Wired Up At Team USA Mini-Camp
Super cool video from USA Basketball
featuring Damian Lillard wearing a wire during the first day of the Team USA mini-camp in Las Vegas.
My favorite part? Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski telling Lillard the following:
"When you're playing and you're leading, don't feel like you have to run a play... Those plays are there if you don't have anything."
Granted, there's not much offense you can install in a few days, and Team USA plays more of a free-flowing style in order to take advantage of their supreme athleticism, but it still shows a level of trust from Coach K in Lillard's decision-making. That's a telling sign of his chances of one day making the Senior National Team.
