Watching for that "0"

The PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS take the court tonight against the LOS ANGELES LAKERS to open their NBA season with an OAKLAND-born rookie expected to help lead the team.
Point guard DAMIAN LILLARD will wear "0" in honor of the state of his pro hoops team (Oregon), the town of his college (Odgen, Utah, the home of Weber State) and Oakland.
As an Oakland-born guy myself, I'll be following Lillard's progress closely.
Lillard led Portland in scoring (16.2 points per game) in the preseason and will be counted upon to add spark to a team in transition.
I'm looking forward to seeing what this kid can do.
