During Joe Johnson’s NBA playing days, he was known for hitting big shots & taking guys off the dribble, much like current Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard.

Johnson recently had high praise for Lillard when he caught up with Allie Clifton, Richard Jefferson & Channing Frye. 

(Via Road Trippin’):

“I’m a big Dame Lillard fan. What he’s doing is impressive man, especially being in the West. They got a great team in Portland, I like them man. It’s been impressive what Dame’s been doing, especially in the bubble.”
