Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard, also known as Dame, was born in Oakland. California on July 15, 1990. He was selected with the sixth pick (sixth overall) in the 1st round of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.
Today, Lillard is known as one of the most elite point guards of the NBA. He won the NBA Rookie of the year and has been named an All-Star twice.
Let’s look back on the Top 10 plays of his career:
The “White Mamba” was the total opposite of Kobe Bryant being called the “Black Mamba.” Not just because of the color, it has also something to do with the way they play differently.
Brian Scalabrine is an player that ‘plays’ the forward position. He was selected during the second round of the 2001 draft. He had horrible stats and was a non-factor in any game or team he sets foot in.
As a joke, fans will typically proclaim how great and amazing his basketball talents are, call him the ‘White Mamba,’ or propose ridiculous scenarios or trades that could involve Scalabrine.
Below are some Memes that circulated throughout the web:
The jokes have started since the 2008 finals, being spread on mediums such as the comments section on NBA.com as well as YouTube. Fans have even called him the G.O.A.T. – that holds the meaning “Greatest Of All Time.”
Brian Scalabrine was also called “The Man, The Myth, The Legend.”
Over the years, his performance fueled this fire and it spread onto nearly every medium.
See The Epic Fails in his career and the Best Highlight Plays below:
It was in year 2006 of February, where two superstars dueled and combined for 79 points in a game that showcased an unbelievable performance of the aces.
Kobe Bryant finished with 40 points, while Paul Pierce had 39.
Watch the Full Highlights below where the two had a nasty 79 points combined.
Wilkins’s nickname was the “The Human Highlight Film” for his athletic ability and highlight reel dunks. His trademark dunk was a powerful one- or two-handed windmill, dunks he used to capture the slam dunk contest titles in 1985 and 1990. As a basketball player he was known as an acrobatic scorer, somewhat of a gunner, though an outstanding finisher and one of the greatest dunkers in NBA history.
His #21 jersey was retired by the Hawks on January 13, 2001. He is one of four players whose jerseys have been retired by the Hawks.
Let’s take a look back at the Top 10 Dunks of the Human Highlight Film’s career.
Yes I know he only scored 7 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and 1 block but the fact that during the game winning moments he has provided excellent defense against Paul George and sink in a free throw that gave the the lead in OT 102-100 with 5 seconds remaining in the game.
Winslow played excellent denial on PG during the last seconds of the game causing the Pacers to call all of their time out that led to their victory. The Pacers was able to get the ball into the hands of Paul George but it was still Winslow who was there to challenge the shot.
The future looks good for the heat organization but its even better for Chief Justise Winslow as he is would be a force to reckoned with. He is just 19 years old but plays like Butler on defense and I won’t be surprised if he would be the face of the franchise a couple of years from now together with Hassan Whiteside.
Here is the highlight of his defense to offense;
