Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard has turned his hand to breaking stories on Twitter, on the very guys that break stories on NBA players.
The 2012-13 Rookie of the Year has channeled his inner Adrian Wojnarowski and is breaking news about where a pair of national basketball writers are headed.
Lillard first took to Twitter on Wednesday to report that ESPN’s Chris Haynes would be leaving for a job at Yahoo as a senior NBA insider.

The multi-talented guard with part-time gigs as a rap artist and now in news reporting via social media then reported that USA Today writer Sam Amick has joined the rapidly growing outlet The Athletic.
