Lillard: ‘I want to be the Rookie of the Year’
Damian Lillard’s rookie season has consisted of 45 games, 815 points, 292 assists and at least one indelible image.
“I want to be the Rookie of the Year,” Lillard said. “That’s not my primary focus — I really want to be in the playoffs this year. I think as long as I’m doing what I’m doing and helping my team win games, our success as a team will mean I’m playing well, and I think that will lead to individual success.”
