VIDEO: Damian Lillard Predicts 46 Wins, Set Making All-Star Game As Personal Goal On TrueHoopTV
A fun and somewhat enlightening "rapid fire" interview by Henry Abbott on TrueHoopTV
with Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard. Lillard answers questions about vacationing in the offseason, his "Most Interesting Man In The World
" tweets, the hairstyles of Robin Lopez and Neil Olshey (Lillard describes Olshey's cut as a "mullet-looking fade") and the personality of Paul Allen.
Those are the fun questions. The enlightening parts are Lillard predicting that the Trail Blazers will win 46 games this season and that his personal goal is to make the Western Conference All-Star roster. A lot of guys might deflect these questions, but not Lillard, which is something I've respected about him since Day One. The man doesn't parse words.
What are your thoughts on Lillard's 46-win prediction and his personal goal of making the All-Star team? I think 46 wins is the more likely of the two, only because we're arguably in the Golden Age of NBA point guards, but I could definitely see both coming to fruition.
