so I will just wait for people to felt on.
And then I will start my new Siri's called favorite players Just waiting for a couple more viewers so I can start.
People don't miss.
Thank I will start once I get at least, like, five or something.
Okay, I guess I will start.
So I am starting a new series called Favorite Players Talks.
And in this I will be talking about one player and I may change it to two, depending how long it takes to do one player, and I can do it.
I will do players from the N, B a, the NFL or the MLB and you can.
You can suggest people you want me to do in the comments, and I will, and I will think about doing the next week.
So for week one, I am doing Damian Lillard, who is a point guard in the n. B. A.
And I will be going in depth into a stats, some of his personal life and doing and just other different things to know about.
So I will be so gave me.
Willard is the point guard for the point.
Portland Trail Blazers hers and this, and he has played eight seasons in the NBA.
He's 6 to £195 he's 29 years old, so he's still pretty young for the n B A.
So he he he's already a star.
But he condemned him, but he definitely had some good years left, and I'm and I think he could be a whole fame candidate.
He went to Weber State College, and he was drafted in 2012 in Round one, pic six to Portland.
He has stayed in Portland his whole career, and even though they haven't always been the great team, he is rare.
Loyal to Portland, which is some is a thing that not many people do in the league today.
He be he he wears number zero, and most people just think, Oh, he just chose zero because most, um, professional basketball players and and other professional sports, they don't really put a lot of thought into their um into their numbers.
But give me lower thinks of the zero as an O.
Because he grew up in Oakland, California, he went to college in Ogden and he is on a team in Oregon, the Portland Trail Blazers.
So he chose it to kind because in college and high school he wore number one.
But he but he chose that.
He chose the zero to kind of like represents.
So it represents where he's from, and so he's not forgetting where it came from, which I think is a lip is an interesting thing that not many people dio.
So he won rookie of the year, which is an amazing thing, and he had.
He had a really good year.
He averaged 19 points and he scored over 1500 points in total, so that was a very good offensive year.
So in addition, he has been selected to the all MBA first team two times in 2013 and 2018.
And in both of those years he had outstanding years and worked up, and he was a top notch point guard.
And also he had five n b a All Star appearances and he is the only the second Trailblazer besides Clyde Drexler to ever do it.
So inclined Direction is a Hall of Famer, so he's in some pretty interesting company.
Okay, so first career regular season averages.
He averages 24 points per game, 6.
5 assess per game, 4.
3 blocks and averages once deal.
He also averages three turnovers again, which for a point guard is not that bad.
Because you, if you think about it, if you're handling the ball, what a lot like he does and getting a lot of usage edge, he will.
Definitely he's bound, have returned over like that's normal.
So those stats are like, really good.
It's really hard to average 20 plus points in the N B A.
So toe average 20 plus points for over your career.
That's really good.
5 assists, if not the highest number for a point guard.
But it's still a very good number.
For a guy who's only 6 £395 averaging 4.
2 rebounds is pretty good because when you think in the grand scheme of things, when you got guys seven feet, 300 plus pounds, ounce toe play with those guys eyes, it's really hard, um, 0.
That's not ah, high number, but for a guy who? 63 a And for a point guard, it's not really expected to have a lot of blocks, one steel.
Thus that's pretty good.
It's not like the highest number.
Or he could definitely improve on his defense, and but that, um, it's a still it's still a good number.
So overall, like Damian Lillard, is like an offense first type of guy like he's his defense is definitely nowhere near how good his offenses.
But he's still young, so he can improve on his defense, and he can definitely get better.
So for Korea, regular season totals throughout his whole career, he scored 14,586 points.
That's a lot of points for a guy who's only 29.
I'm like he's not gonna I don't think he's going to score 30,000 plus points, but I think he will definitely he put with Justice point totals.
I definitely think you have to be a considered in the Hall of Fame.
Um, he has 3932 assests, which is a good amount of assess their some people that don't even get that in their whole career, so naturally good 2539 rebounds.
That's a really good number for a guy who's only 62 or 638 and not even £200.
So that's a really good number.
And I think that's a big thing for Damian Lure that he's able to rebound found even when he's not going to be a big center power forward.
He has 192 blocks, which is not a big number her, but for a point guard.
Nobody's gonna like reprimand you if you don't get a ton of blocks.
UM, 592 steals last.
That's pretty good for Onley playing eight years like it's not going to be the highest amount of steals ever.
But once again, Damian Lillard is not a defence of guy on and I don't think that is focused.
He can definitely get better at it, but I think he mainly focuses on his offense 1683 turnovers.
Now some of you may be like Oh my, that's a lot of turnovers but if you think about it, it when you handle the ball and I think he has a uses percentage, close toe 50 even, maybe greater hurt is basically like how much you have a ball and the team like, uses him m.
And if you're handling the ball a lot on your making passes and you're having a lot of assists, you're about to get turnovers for sometimes you're bound to miss a path or somebody's gonna steal from you if you're constantly dribbling the ball like a point guard dust, so I don't think that's that bad.
There are some people, like, I think, if you just to put in perspective LeBron James, who some people think is one of the greatest players of all time.
Some may even think he's the greatest is top 10 all time and turnovers and that doesn't make him a bad player.
It means that he is constantly handling the ball and he is constantly has a ball in his hand.
And when you have the ball in the hand as much as LeBron James has where he's been on teams where he's I had to carry the load, that's not surprising because as there are good defenders in this league and they're bound to get the better of you sometimes and a good thing toe look at is the assist to turnover ratio and Damian Lillard has a 2.
3 assist to turnover ratio.
Which is it pretty good, for that means he has to.
The average is 2.
3 sets for every turnover, which I don't really know, like compared to other people, how good that is.
But it's definitely not bad.
So that doesn't mean he's thrown away the ball every single time in a descend.
And when I was looking at some of his they call them miscellaneous staff at is that Damien Lord seems to be a guy that can keep his emotions in check on the field.
He has zero ejections when his whole career zero flagrant flowers and he only has 20 technicals holes and in his whole career like that's a pretty low number for people in the MBA.
There are people in MBA who have 20 plus technicals in a year and there is something that people have been saying is that like the players are talking to the reps maybe a little too much and that's maybe a rule that there may be signing to crack down on that.
So in a time period where people are constantly talking to the refs s.
I think 20 technicals in your whole career is a pretty low number because there are people that get, like, 30 technicals in a year.
So I think he's a very mild mannered guy in the court, which is good like fans love people have a personality ian stuff.
But when you're on the basketball court, your main focus should be playing basketball and you don't you shouldn't be snapping at the rapture, in my opinion.
So for a guy who so a guy who mainly focuses on the basketball when he's on the court and has the ability toe keep his emotions, his check and that's a very good skill, so indifferent.
Damian Load has two seasons with 2000 plus points, and it's hard to score 2000 points.
That means you're averaging 20.
I think you're averaging over 25 points a game, which is that's a hard to consistently dio.
So two with two seasons with 2000 plus points that's really good and I know it earlier.
But he's played all eight seasons in Portland and for a league where people move around a lot and there's a lot of big trades age, especially if they're on a bad team and they have talent like he hit.
I'm Damon Littler does.
A lot of people were trade out if they're not winning a championship, but that shows that he's dedicated and he's focused on team play and that if he's gonna win it when a championship, he's gonna win it with his teammates and his team that he's committed to for eight seasons, which, like some people, have different views on it.
That like if you're getting traded toe win like that, you're Golan's.
If that's what you want to do, you want to focus on your personal things.
But I also think it's a nice thing if you have a guy that's committed to your teammates and is committed to the team, no matter how bad or how good they are.
So um in addition like that's that was like the maid that's like the popular, the main stuff on Damian Lillard and I think I'm reaching the end of my broadcast.
So if anybody has any questions about him or if anybody wants to digest some players that you would like me to do in my next episodes from the MLB, MBA or NFL, I will taking into consideration.
And maybe I'll do him in the coming weeks.
So I will wait until 15 minutes and 30 seconds, and then I will end the broadcast.
So, uh, Gabby E G.
Do you think he is not as possible? Because he is on the West Coast.
Um, so I don't exactly understand what you mean, but do you think he's not as popular cause he is on the West Coast? Okay, um, I don't know.
He I think he's a pretty popular player.
I definitely really like him, but for people maybe on the East Coast or the Central And since he's not on a winning team, a known winning team for the past couple of years that can definitely make him less popular are like at C t mom two or three.
East Coast is the best coast.
Yeah, So, um, for a guy like when you're not on a winning team, it's hard to be ah, popular player.
And that's what I think.
And that's what I think Damien Lil I admire about Damon.
Lowered is Miss he's not worried about the fame aspect of it.
He's he just wants toe play basketball and he's good. A.
He's going to do it on his terms and not let anybody else regard do what he does.
So in the higher popularity, I can see where he's not popular are especially on the East Coast and the West Coast, in the East Coast, in the Central States, because he's not on a winning team like there are guys that, like Steph Curry and be honest antetokounmpo and they're both really good players.
But something that helps her popularity is their teams.
Steph Curry is one like three, um, titles and Yana Sento kun bo.
The Bucks have went to the playoffs the last two years, and those guys are the guys that are gonna have, like international fame and be known all over the world and all over the country s.
So if the Trailblazers do go and start winning games, which I think they definitely could in some of the upcoming years, if they build around Damian Lillard before he gets too old and they start winning and they they start conducting for the championship, Damian Lillard is a guy that would probably carry that team, and that will make him, I think, even more popular than he is today.
So once again, thank you for watching and sharing your opinions.
I will give you guys a minute.
If you have any people that you would suggest I do, and I will write them down.
I have a piece of paper right here, and I will see if I can do them in some of my upcoming videos.
Just reiterate I I'm mostly focusing on the MLB NFL an MBA because I don't know too much about, Like, soccer players are like, um uh, hockey players K C Teen, Mom two or three.
OK, I will come down.
So that's actually interesting because I hadn't I really thought that I was.
I had been mainly focusing on people that have already played, but that could be interesting.
Is doing like people that are legends and people that are in the Hall of Fame across because water paying for the people who don't know is a running back who was a running back for the Chicago Bulls for the Chicago Bears in I think, that eighties and nineties.
He's So, um, I will at C t mom dough bears.
Okay, so that wraps it up for this broad cash.
And I will see if I can incorporate Walter Payton into one of my next videos.
And everybody thank you for watching.
