    Damianation so much better than Jimmermania. Nice to see a player with a team concept do so well. You can have the sideshow, I just want to see the show! He has more all-around skills than Fredette as well. I hope he sticks around for his senior year to break the all-time scoring leader at Weber State!

    I think the nickname needs a little work. Damianation sounds like a skin disease or character from a horror movie.

    I watched him play against Sacramento State University. I assure you he is no "Jimmer"!

    @ksmith,

    I totally agree: Lillard can play defense and will pass the ball, something Fredette never did. The Fredette doesn't have as good a field goal percentage either. I felt embarrassed for him on some of the shots he hucked up seven feet past the time line. Sure it was cute when he'd hit them, but he looked like a ball hog when he missed him. You could totally tell Fredette was concerned about his stats first and foremost when he played. Lillard is concerned about the team--what a concept!

    Better skills and not a media circus. So much better! Better NBA career ahead as well. Loved the air ball he hucked up against the Jazz--classic!

    Lillard must be really good if everyone is comparing Jimmer to him.

    Jimmer played 4 years. Lillard is 3/4ths the way through his junior year.
