Damian Lillard is officially our new favorite NBA point guard. And it has absolutely nothing to do with what he's able to do on the basketball court.

Rather, we're loving Lillard right now because he's about to dramatically impact the number of struggle rappers who fill our inboxes, Twitter mentions, and Facebook messages with struggle bars. And how's he doing it? By launching something that he's calling #4BarFriday. Basically, he's asking for anyone who wants to participate in it to rap four bars on Instagram and then tag it with the hashtag #4BarFriday. And then…well, we don't know what happens next. It looks like Lillard will like a few of them or something. But it doesn't appear that there's any kind of prize. It's just a way for Lillard to get all the "folks that tweet me that you can rap" in one place, so that he doesn't have to be bothered with 47586231 tweets from struggle rappers. It's actually pretty genius.

If you want to take part, #4BarFriday is taking place right now over here. Go and "spit hot fire like Dylan" as Lillard says. Have fun.
