Damian Lillard says he has become a better player since he started making music
Portland Trail BLazers superstar point guard Damian Lillard has recently opened up about his thoughts on the all-important work-life balance. In a recent tweet, the 29-year-old explained how making music has actually helped make him a better player overall.
“Since I started putting out music and taking it seriously I have been better as a player. It’s balance,” he says.
Lillard, aka Dame D.O.L.L.A., recently came out with his third studio album, which has actually gotten some rave reviews all around. While there are some who might consider this to be a distraction for the four-time All-Star, Lillard claims that it is actually quite the contrary.
Dame did not go into detail as to how this hobby of his has helped him further his game, but it seems that the 6-foot-3 point guard is taking a shot at some of his other peers in the league with his recent statement.
“I don’t broadcast my training or have pick up game highlights that y’all love… but when the real thing comes we see who was doing what when the cameras were off! GoodMorning,” added Lillard.
What he seems to be implying here is that despite all the time he spends in the studio working on his music, he makes sure that he is able to spend an equal, if not even more time in the gym to polish his game. Lillard is not one for flashy highlight reels on social media, but according to the former Rookie of the Year himself, he shows what he’s made of when it matter the most.
