    Damien Lillard will participate in the Slam Dunk Contest!

    According to a report from CSN Northwest, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard will accept an invitation to participate in the 2014 NBA Dunk Contest at All-Star weekend later this month.

    Not only that, but Lillard will defend his Skills Competiton title, and has been invited to the three-point contest. He's already in the Rising Stars rookies-sophomores game Friday nght and was named an All-Star reserve. So...

    The NBA has broached Lillard with an attractive, unprecedented opportunity. They've asked him to consider the Three-Point Shooting Contest as well, another source relayed to CSNNW.com.

    So far, the reining Rookie of the Year is committed to defending his Skills Challenge title; he's competing in the Dunk Contest, the Rising Stars Challenge and the All-Star game.

    No player in the history of the game has ever competed in all five All-Star Weekend events in the same weekend.

    The NBA will announce those participating tomorrow.

    Pretty honorable of him to do. Aside from Amare and Dwight we haven't seen many All Star Game participants compete in last 10 or so years.

    Wow. This kid has a future in him. He's probably doing it to get his name out there for more endorsements but damn.. All events? Impressive.. Very good from Lillard. I hope other athletes follow his motive.
