Damian Lillard Day? Portland Mayor Says ‘We’ll Make That Happen’
One day after Damian Lillard set Portland Trail Blazer and personal records in the team’s 129-124 overtime win against Golden State, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler suggested the idea of a “Damian Lillard Day.”

Damian Lillard was certainly on board with the idea.

Former Blazer Evan Turner went a step further and suggested the city name a street or a high school after the Portland star point guard.
Dolla with another 60 point effort??
