Damian Lillard interview

24 Oct, 2014

Lillard appears on Conan and talks about the growing up playing basketball without a hoop, his famous “Dame-face”, and why he chose the number 0 for his jersey. He also demonstrates his four-bar rapping skills.

Well, it started off on a tree. There was a tree in front of my grandmother’s house. I would shoot over the tree branch. That was my hoop. The grandfather cut down the tree so I ended up nailing a milk carton to a telephone pole. It’s round, you can’t shoot off the back bound. It helped me learn how to shoot over the rim better.
