Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A. dropped a 12-track rap album on Friday. He has released songs before, but this is his first album. It comes after a summer in which he performed his first concert on his birthday, and then he performed with DJ Esco for fans at an adidas event in Vegas. The album, called The Letter O (which he explained stands for Oakland, Ogden and Oregon), features artists such as Lil Wayne and Jamie Foxx. And the first song is called Bill Walton. You can buy it on iTunes or stream it on Spotify/Apple Music. The response from the NBA has been great.
Lillard joined The Jim Rome Show on Thursday and talked about how this quote along with many of his and other players’ quotes can a lot of times be misconstrued through the media, especially since he’s always speaking his mind. Lillard took time to explain his quote and admitted that he knows Durant and is actually “cool” with him. “I got a lot of respect for [Durant]. I’m a fan of him as a basketball player, but people took it like I was going at him, which I wasn’t,” Lillard said. “What I was saying was about myself, it wasn’t about anybody else. “I was saying joining other big time players and joining a team like Golden State is that something I couldn’t see myself doing. We play this game to win and if that’s what somebody is willing to do to win, and if that’s what they want to go and do, then that’s fine. It’s not against the rules. We can’t be mad at anybody for joining whatever team they want to join, but what I was saying, I’d rather do it with the team I have. I’d rather build it up to being a championship team.”
