Houston Lillard not the only athlete in the family

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Tri-Cities Fever quarterback Houston Lillard's brother is getting big honors. Weber State point guard Damian Lillard is a finalist for the John Wooden player of the year award. 

The honor comes after the Big Sky Conference named him player of the year. Houston talks about what it's like to have a younger brother who could be a first round NBA draft pick. 

"Just the fact that you know, knowing how he was growing up and seeing him mature into a young man and just turn into a great basketball player on the college level. I think it's surreal for me. I'm blessed when I watch him I get real angry, and I feel like I'm there. I just always want to make every game so just the fact that he's doing good and having fun I'm real proud of him," Houston said.

Houston says Damian, who has another year of eligibility at Weber State, has not yet made a decision on whether to enter the NBA draft.
