Portland Trail Blazers PG Damian Lillard Will Surprisingly Win Three Point Contest

Damian Lillard is being counted out by a number of people and totally understand why. He is competing in all five All Star weekend events, and it probably looks like a bit too much for a young player like him. He is only touching the top of his stamina level though, and so it will be fun to watch his fatigue throughout the weekend.

Do not think he will make much of a splash in many of the events, but the three point contest has got his name written all over it and believe he will come away with the top honor in that event. Lillard specializes from the spots on the floor that the contest relies on, and so look for the All Star to have a great first round at the very least.

If he does not end up winning, then blame it on the ghost of Larry Bird. The Legend once won the three point contest while still wearing his warmups, which you would have to put on the top five of all time baller moves when it comes to All Star weekend. The Legend is still making moves so be sure to keep a look out for his squad when the playoffs come. That is all for pro basketball tonight, but be sure to stop by tomorrow if you feel so inclined.
