Damian Lillard proves why he was tipped to be an All-Star

Published Add your comment

It was only in this past month that NBA legend Kobe Bryant tipped Damian Lillard to get the nod for the All-Star game ahead of him.

And though fans may have ignored Bryant and voted him in at point-guard anyway, the sentiment shown by the LA Lakers star goes beyond simply wanting his Portland Trail Blazers’ rival to get a break.

Damian Lillard is proving himself to be a very powerful player this year.

And nowhere has been this more evident than during the Trail Blazers’ game against the Denver Nuggets. They may have lost 115-110, but Lillard showcased once again why he’s held in high esteem by the likes of Bryant.

Taking advantage of a relatively weak Nuggets defence, the rising star thundered through the middle of the court before slamming down a dunk that left the back-board well and truly rocking.

Watch the dunk in the video above.
