Trail Blazers

The All-NBA teams were announced on Tuesday evening and a certain Trail Blazers point guard made the list. 

Damian Lillard, Portland's six-time All-Star was named to the All-NBA Second Team. 

This the fourth time in his career that Lillard has been named to the All-NBA Second Team.

He also has an All-Rookie First Team (2013), All-NBA Third Team (2014), and an All-NBA First Team (2018) selection under his belt.

Dame received 372 points, including 38 first-team votes. That is more than the 323 points and 28 first-place votes that first-team selection Kawhi Leonard received. However, Leonard plays forward while Lillard plays guard, Lillard trailed Luka Donci (402 points and 55 first-place votes) and Curry (496 points and 98 first-team votes) when it came to guards.

Lillard led the Blazers to a 42-30 record and a sixth-place finish in the Western Conference while averaging 28.8 points, 7.5 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game.

Joining him on the second team are Joel Embiid, LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Julius Randle.
