Joe Johnson was known for hitting big shots & taking guys off the dribble, much like current Trail Blazer Damian Lillard. The two have combined for a countless number of game-winners throughout their careers. Johnson recently had high praise for Lillard when he caught up with Allie Clifton, Richard Jefferson & Channing Frye.

“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.”
