Dont forget marketing. This guy was never an above average PG or elite. He has a great marketing team, and had a lot of cute plays. There is absolutely no case that he is better than Teague, Conley, post smith Jennings, Tony Parker etc but you wouldn't know that watching ESPN, and watching adidas commercials. Absolutely overrated by the media

He's been hyped up way too much this season. I can remember people saying he was better than Westbrook earlier in the year, after they each had 40 points in a head to head but Lillard got the W. He's still a top-10 PG easily imo but he's not an elite tier PG, never was.

He is an elite shooter with a bad shot selection and decision making ability. Overrated as fvck and a whining crybaby that throws tantrums when he doesn't make an All Star game that he didn't even come close to deserving to play in.

This.

And casual NBA fans are literally the dumbest of any fans in any sport in the world so if you say Lillard isn't that good, sucks at defense, etc. then they will lash out at you and say you don't know basketball.
