Portland Trail Blazers Rumors
But before all that, Walton played three seasons for the San Diego Clippers after his fall out with the Portland Trail Blazers at the end of the 1970s. It was a return to Southern California for Walton, who grew up in La Mesa, 15 minutes east of San Diego. This past week, Walton was invited back to San Diego to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a San Diego Padres game. In true Walton form, it did not go to plan. Walton’s first pitch didn’t go that well, so he decided to do something a little unorthodox — pitch a second first pitch.
Dame just dropped his 3rd album, “Big D.O.L.L.A.” and the early reviews are good … so good that some people are saying the NBA star has a shot at rap superstardom. So, when we talked to Dame we had to know how far he wants to take this rap thing … and if he cares about the accolades that come along with it …. like a Grammy. “I don’t care about it maybe to the level I care about being the MVP or winning a championship.”
So, there you have it Trail Blazers fans … you can breathe, Dame isn’t going anywhere. He did point out though, that he thinks he has a chance to do something no other hooper has, and that intrigues him. “I care about in the sense that how many NBA All-Stars or max contract players can say, ‘I legitimately won a Grammy.'”
