Remembering Damian Lillard’s Historic All-Star Weekend in 2014

In just his second season in the NBA, Lillard participated in each of the five All-Star events: the Rising Stars Challenge, Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest, Dunk Contest and NBA All-Star Game. The feat was as unique as it was impressive, especially given Lillard’s status as an NBA sophomore. Lillard’s schedule for the 3-Point Contest...
