It's still early, so lets not get too carried away. The meat of the NBA season is only now starting to come up. We don't know anything really (except that the Lakers can't defend the perimeter) so any award talk is premature.
However, they might just have a special player up in Portland. Rookie point guard Damian Lillard has been everything the Trail Blazers could have asked for and then some. Here he is last night drilling a buzzer beater like it's nothing. ROY? Well, let's just say he's in the lead.
