Damian Lillard very good, but needs better defense
He's very, very good. But if he wants to be great he needs to improve on the defensive end of the floor, and limit his inefficient nights offensively. Maybe he doesn't want to hear it. Maybe his biggest fans don't either. But it's the truth. Lillard, and most of his teammates, have won nothing yet. Let's save the parade until after the title run. He took a funny passive-aggressive shot at me this week via twitter, but I like the guy. I like, most of all, that nothing on the court happens faster on offense than Lillard wants it to happen. Nothing is a big deal to him. His reaction this week might be the best defense he's played all season.
