In Portland basketball, there are only two names that you need to know: Damian Lillard and Clyde Drexler.

Still, some still can't put him over Clyde Drexler, who was one of the silkiest scorers on the court and guided the team to two NBA Finals. Who is your Portland G.O.A.T.? 🏀

Damian Lillard is havin his time in the sun and he's been a great player since he was drafted in 2012. However, he isn't on the same level as Clyde Drexler in terms of greatness.

Drexler was the best player on two Trail Blazer teams that made it to the NBA Finals while Damian Lillard has only made one Western Conference Final. And while Lillard can score with the best of them, Drexler was a better two-way player, averaging more steals and having a better defensive rating than his counterpart.

The Phi Slamma Jamma alum took the Blazers further than Lillard ever has. That is why he is the greatest Trail Blazer.
