With the Trailblazers' season over, star point guard Damian Lillard has time for more trivial things. Like graduating college.

On Friday, Lillard officially graduated from Weber State, where he studied and played for four years, and spoke at the school's commencement ceremony.

Lillard scored 18.6 points per game, including 24.5 his senior year, at Weber State, a small college in Utah. He was selected sixth in the 2012 NBA draft.
