Damian Lillard isn’t just crafty with a basketball in his hand, the Portland point guard has got a few tricks up his sleeve off the court as well. On Tuesday he posted a photo of his beaming mom next to a Cadillac Escalade SUV wrapped in a bright red bow. It was a surprise gift for her birthday. It’s the kind of gift that most can only dream about giving, something Lillard called “the kind of moment that makes me happy”.
I called her and told her we were going to go to lunch after shoot-around with family that I had in town. Then when I came home I said come outside and let’s get your gifts out of the car so we can go to lunch. Then she came out and she saw the truck and it had a bow and everything on it so kind of started laughing then she started crying. She was excited and those are the kind of moments that make me happy.
