It’s Dame Time on this week’s episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. The Trail Blazers superstar comes on to talk all things hoop, looking back on his meteoric rise from unknown high school player to small school star to one of the best in the NBA. Dame explains how he ended up at Weber State and why getting hurt during his junior year was the best thing for his career. Then Lillard takes it back to his getting drafted by Portland and why he refused to believe he was going to be a lottery pick until the moment his name was called. He gets into his growth in the league, what it was like to play with LaMarcus Aldridge and what could have been if LA had stayed in Portland. Dame also touches on CJ McCollum’s rise as a player and opens up about just how close the two of them are. Then he gets into how he learned to shoot so effectively from deep range and how that led to his epic walk-off shot against OKC in last year’s playoffs. The flow of the conversation then turns to Dame’s music, what it’s like to be close with Lil Wayne and how he started his rap career. Later on, the guys get into Dame’s self-surprising shoe deal, and he reveals what he first bought when he made it big and how he wanted to bring it back to the crib immediately. Damian Lillard is beast on and off the court and you won’t want to miss him sitting down with Q and D.

I dont understand how the world do not understand that this is the best player in the world! I just watched him in the bubble get double team at half court that is ridiculous words can't even describe that! Don't believe what they tell you let your eyes tell you the truth!!

If ESPN didn’t have TV deals with the the league’s- they would cease to exist. They better get wit the times and understand Steven a Smith and his ranting and raving is NOT what real sports fans want. To stay successful, you got to change with the times, or you end up stale

I remember all those years when Dame was getting that ASG snub. he'd punish the Warriors every time after the break.

Dame is one of the best players in the league. But he wasn't truthful about one thing...It was jrue holiday and only jrue holiday whom completely shutdown Dame in the New Orleans series. But in reality there isn't a point guard in the entire league that's able to solve the jrue holiday equation .

What a journey. Lillard and Curry are the 2 best PG's of the era 13'-now', much like Nash and CP3 were the best from 05'-12'. Since start of 17'/18' season, Dame has made attempted 200 shots from 30 feet, making 74 of them. 37% from 30 feet!!!???!!!??? Dame has a higher % on 30 footers than Curry. Stats say Dame makes MORE and at a better %. (9) 50+ point games (1 in playoffs, 9 total 50,50,50,51,51,51,59,60,61) (Durant and Curry only have 6) www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/50-point-game-most-times.html 5 of the top-100 all-time highest Hollinger Game scores (58th, 45th, 41st, 36th, and 26th best game ever!) www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/game_score.html 2 of the 7 All-time NBA playoff series-ending game-winning shots in NBA history are by DAMIAN LILLARD ( M. Jordan 2, D. Lillard 2, J. Stockton 1, R. Sampson 1, K. Leonard 1) 1 of 3 NBA players all-time to start their careers with 6 straight season of at least 1,500 points and 400 assists (Oscar Robertson, Lebron James, Damian Lillard) He made this song: ruvid.net/video/video-0mM527yJ3K8.html - fitting Damian owns the MLK Jr. Day NBA scoring record of 61pts. Ironic. DAME scoring 50 points the day Kobe passes is poetic. KOBE was the KING of the 50 point game

Damian Lillard did some spring cleaning one day he went live then showed up to Irving Park with a uhaul full of shoes for the kid's. He's a real leader, and roll model on, and off of the court! 💯 ruvid.net/video/video-bZZXvvSzDbU.html

Why do I feel like Miles isn't a fan of Curry? There have been statements in multiple videos he's said that seem like they are jabs at Steph but idk. Maybe that's why he hasn't been on here yet either.

booker plain and simple is not an allstar. if he's an allstar Phx has to win more. He is capable to for 50 light on any night but he's inconsistent. he averaged 27 or 28 by getting 15 some nights and 40 others.don't me wrong he's an allstar talent and a terrific scorer. so was jamal crawford. so is lou williams. he's borderline. i might put him in if there was one more spot, but i wouldn't take anyone out for him.
