Mandatory Credit: Geoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsDamian Lillard, last year's Rookie of the Year, is enjoying continued success in the NBA and will be looking to collect an unprecedented amount of hardware at this year's All-Star Weekend.

Lillard will be playing in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night (Feb. 14), along with the NBA's best rookies and sophomores.

On Saturday, Feb. 15, he'll team up with Utah Jazz player Trey Burke to defend his Skills Challenge title, move right into the 3-point contest, and then finish his evening by participating in the dunk contest to cap off the night.

The next day, he'll play in the All-Star Game, capping off a ridiculous weekend of activity.

If Lillard is successful, he could be the first player ever to be victorious in so many events. As it is now, no one has ever won both a dunk contest any other major contest. We'll see if Lillard can pull off the amazing trifecta.

Who knows? He could come up empty, he could win everything, or he could fall somewhere in between. What do you think? Will he win any (or all) events? Or will he come home empty handed?
