Damian Lillard and the Portland Trailblazers are having a fantastic season. At 39-26, riding an eight-game winning streak, the Blazers currently hold the third spot in the West, behind the Warriors and Rockets while Lillard himself is putting up a very solid 26.8 points and 6.4 assists per game.

Damian Lillard is a different man depending on how his hair is styled. Any Dame is a deadly one of course, but the one on the right seems to be significantly better than the one on the left. And no, nobody has a clue why.
