By the time the NBA All Star Game rolls around, I have shot many of the top players in one fashion or another and have a sense of their game. But Damian Lillard was a surprise to me. Only a rookie, Damian won the Skills Challenge at All Star Saturday night and also competed in the Rookie/ Sophomore game. Aside from his on court events, he was a pleasure to shoot! While I was only able to photograph him for a few minutes, he was great and for a photographer, there is nothing better than a subject who takes direction well. I think you should expect to be hearing more from this talented young man.
