It's been a rough professional start for the No. 21 pick of the 2011 NBA Draft, thus far. The Portland Trail Blazers selected Nolan Smith, the four-year guard out of Duke, with hopes of him potentially being the long-term solution as their floor general. Fast forward to today, we all know that's not going to be the case. Smith's teammate, a rookie point guard by the name of Damian Lillard, has taken the NBA by storm on his way to two consecutive Rookie of the Month honors and has been crowned the team's franchise point guard.
