Damian Lillard: A Legit NBA Star (Photo)

Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard has quickly risen into one of the best young players in the game. So far this season, Lillard is scoring 20.8 points, dishing 6.2 assists and grabbing 5.2 rebounds for the 20-6 Blazers.

The Oakland native is perhaps best known for this series-ending buzzer-beater, during last year's playoffs. The three-point shot knocked the Rockets out of the playoffs, while sending the Blazers to the second round.

During a recent Portland visit to Detroit, iFolloSports.com Michigan correspondent Lance Martinez captured the above original photo of Lillard signing autographs at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

In the contest that followed, Lillard totaled 14 points and 7 assists, amid the Blazers 98-86 victory.
