With Lillard Turning 25 tomorrow, it makes me think about the window of opportunity we have with Lillard at the the helm. At what age cane we expect Lillard to be at his best. I suppose this question has to take in a combination of experience and age, but age is a key factor when it comes to an NBA career. Being that it is only his forth year in the NBA this year, hopefully there is no way he has reached his peak. Also Lillard will be challenged in ways I don't think he can really fathom this year as his desire to win will be greatly tested with the fact it will sometimes be up to him alone if he wants to win games. This year alone I suspect he will grow greatly. I see Lillard more as a creator and shooter than a distributor and needs to rely a more on physical than mental skills (relatively speaking, they are both important). So I would say that Lillard's prime years are going to be between the ages of 26-29. That is when physically his body will be peaking in combination with the knowledge he will have. I still see him being productive after that but during those ages he has the ability to take over games on a consistent basis. That means short of Lillard demanding a trade, the Blazers should have Lillard during his best years and an all star at the PG position for years to come.
