# 6

So the TBlazers nabbed Dame with the sixth pick in the NBA draft. Alex Kennedy has the background.

Kurt Kragthorpe reports on the celebration in Ogden.

Jimmy Durkin also checks in.

Nabbed this from Eric Bossi/Rivals:  
6. Damian Lillard, Weber State (Portland), not rated (2008): Sometimes you just have to laugh at badly missing out on an evaluation. Of course, the fact that Lillard ended up at Weber State means lots of people missed out on him. However, I did see Lillard play in April 2007 (his junior year) with the Oakland Rebels in Las Vegas. I remember myself and longtime scouting friend Rob Harrington of Prepstars really thinking we'd found a sleeper, for upper level mid-majors. I wrote, "underrated guy who is maybe on the small side, but he can play. Shoots jumpers with range and confidence, attacks via the bounce and is an athletic open court finisher. Needs strength but has good quickness and doesn't back down from anybody."
Congrats to an individual who is going to succeed at anything he undertakes.
