Athleticism: Lillard is a terrific athlete for a one, and fits the mold for being a speedy point guard. Has terrific quickness and straight-line speed, readily apparent in the open floor. Has a good burst and accelerates quickly out it, showing the ability to shift gears and keep his defender off balance. Fairly explosive leaper off of one foot or two, but gets most rise off of two feet. Possesses a lot of spring and gets great hang time, showing the impressive ability to rise and throw down above the rim. He's not in the elite for point guard athletes in the NBA, but he's easily among the top half.
