Damian Lillard’s remarkable ascent from mid-major gem to NBA star continues. The Blazers point guard has been selected as the cover athlete for EA Sports’ NBA LIVE 15, marking the latest achievement in his young career.

“I think it’s such an honor because of the journey, because of how hard I had to work to earn something like this,” Lillard told SI.com. “And to earn my stay in this league, period. Just being a cover athlete is a big deal to me, because when I try to remember a certain year of a game, I gotta go back to who the cover athlete was. When people go back to this one, they’ll remember that Dame Lillard was on the cover, and I’m just glad EA Sports has given me the opportunity to be that guy.”
