Is Damian Lillard the next Derrick Rose? Let’s examine the similarities. Dame and D-Rose both won Rookie of the Year, both are slashing point guards who jumped from the teens to over 20ppg in their second seasons, and the way things are going this year, both will have helped their teams (both in red, black and white, by the way) return to the playoffs.
