When Damian Lillard retreated to his Lake Oswego home during the All-Star Break last month, he did more than just rest his aching body. He healed a troubled mind, and worried heart. As much as the Trail Blazers’ 23-33 record at the time was bothering him, so too was a family matter that touched him to his core. “If it’s really in my heart, it’s going to weigh on me, consume me,’’ Lillard said while touching his chest.
Lillard asked that the issue remain private, but he admitted it had seeped so deeply into him that it affected his sleep, his focus, his persona, and ultimately, his play. “It wasn’t like I was going through something off the court, then it was working out on the court,’’ Lillard remembered. “It was like – we’re losing games, we’re not performing like we need to, I’m not playing my best basketball, and I’ve got things stressing me off the floor. It was kind of a tough spot.’’
