Damian Lillard Named Reserve for 2020 NBA All-Star Game, Compete in 3-Point Contest

Despite being snubbed in the past, Damian Lillard is an NBA All-Star once again.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports also tweeted out Lillard will be in the NBA 3-Point Contest for the second time in his career.

In previous years, fans, media and even Lillard himself wondered if he’d be an All-Star. This year finally seemed like a foregone conclusion.

The 2020 NBA All-Star Game marks Lillard’s fifth career appearance and his third straight season being selected as an All-Star.

Lillard was third among West guards in the All-Star Starters voting process. He was only behind Luka Doncic and James Harden, who will both start.

Now we wait to see if Lillard will be on Team LeBron for a second straight All-Star game or if he’ll be a Team Giannis selection. The All-Star Game Draft is set for Feb. 6. The game itself will be Feb. 16 with a new format.
