You may know Damian Lillard from his skills on the court for the Portland Trailblazers but Damian is nice on the mic as well!


 
From growing up in the city of Oakland to making NBA history, Damian Lillard is back on Sway in the Morning.
 
After dropping the illest freestyle over the classic Dead Presidents beat, Lillard opened up about giving back to his Bay Area community and why he prefers cameras to not be around.
 

 

Interestingly enough, Dame and Sway went to the same High School — Oakland High — and had more in common than we thought.

    I’m definitely a fan of this dude now. He shows out on the court, but he’s
    mad humble. Plus dude can actually spit. I need to see him and Lance
    Stephenson battle lol

    He personifies the term professional. He’s great on and off the court. He
    doesn’t forget where he came from. He realizes that he is blessed, and some
    things are bigger than the game of basketball. I respect those that do
    charity off camera. Because those NBA Cares commercials are probably the
    fakest most staged things I’ve ever seen. Another name that comes to mind
    is John Wall. Remember a few weeks back when he lost this little girl he
    met through charity to cancer? She was 6 years old. He spent as much time
    with her and her family as he possibly could. Once he lost her, he went out
    the next day and balled in a double overtime game. He dropped like 26 and
    13, and after he dedicated that game to her, he broke down crying, unable
    to finish the post-game interview. Dame going back to Oakland to take care
    of those who helped him is a reminder that there are still good people out
    there, and that it is more than a game.
