Guard – Damian Lillard
Damian Lillard is on his way to becoming the best player in the history of the Portland Trail Blazers. Drafted sixth overall in 2012, he quickly established himself as one of the best scoring point guards in the game. Lillard won the Rookie of the Year Award in 2013 and he is also a three-time All-Star already.
If Lillard spends his entire career in Portland, there is a chance that he will go down as the greatest player the franchise has ever produced. He has led the team to the playoffs five times. He also ranks fourth in the team’s all-time scoring and assist list while also ranking first in three-pointers made.
Honorable Mention: Guard – Brandon Roy
Oh, what could have been. Brandon Roy was one of the up and coming superstars of the NBA during his playing days. However, his career was cut short after just six years due to degeneration of cartilages in his knees. Roy was a three-time All-Star and the 2007 Rookie of the Year. He also led the Trail Blazers to the playoffs for three-straight years from 2009 to 2011.Published 16 Jan 2019, 18:17 IST
