Vote Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers – NBA Social Media Awards


Voting for the NBA Social Media Awards wraps up today, so you had better hurry if you would like to support your Portland Trail Blazers. The Social Media Awards are ultimately meaningless, but they are a fun way for the fans to recognize teams and players they prefer to connect with. Damian Lillard, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Chris Paul are in the running for Social MVP. Log in to Facebook or Twitter to vote for your favorite. For your convenience, here is a tweet that you can retweet to vote for Lillard:

 

 

Last year, Lillard won Social Media Rookie of the Year. He may not have the same Twitter following (451K) as his competitors (James: 13.3M, Durant: 7.4M, Paul: 3.3M), but he still stands a chance at winning because he is so active online. His #4BarFriday project has been running strong since last September, passing its 41st iteration last week, and he is constantly interacting with fans. As for the Trail Blazers themselves, they are eligible to win the team category. Their competition is the Indiana Pacers, Golden State Warriors, and Houston Rockets, so be sure to vote. Here is another tweet that you can retweet to vote for your Portland Trail Blazers:
