Paul George: I'm a Big Fan of Damian Lillard

At the end of day two of Team USA training camp, Paul George talked to Trailblazers.com about his admiration for Damian Lillard’s game and poise.

On Lillard’s place in the league

Damian is a big time player in this league. He’s one of those guys that wants the ball in his hands in the last seconds. He’s just poised way beyond his years.

On Lillard’s performance in camp

He’s been doing an amazing job here at camp. He’s been aggressive. He’s really brought his playing style, which made him special. That’s the biggest thing when guys don’t lose what makes them special and they bring it into this camp. It really just elevates the whole practice, elevates the team. It also elevates that individual’s game and that’s been the case for Dame.

On Lillard’s poise 

That’s what you want in your point guard. I think that’s the biggest characteristic a point guard can have is not getting too rattled — not getting too sped up. Point guards gotta learn how to play at their own pace and Damian is like the prime example of doing that.
