Players and fans wish Blazers' Damian Lillard a happy 30th birthday

Jul 15 2020, 1:03 pm

A leader on and off the court for the Portland Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard turns 30 years old, days ahead of the NBA restart in the Florida bubble.

Lillard, the former Rookie of the Year, a five-time NBA All-Star, and designated “best rapper in the NBA,” has played a major role in the resurgence of Trail Blazers basketball since his draft in 2012.

“Chapter 30 comes at a hectic time but thankful to see it none the less,” writes Lillard on Instagram. “Peace and love to everybody man and thank you for all the love!”

As players and teams continue to establish a refurbished practice schedule, with meaningful NBA bubble games around the corner, having the undisputed King of Portland celebrate such a massive milestone is a worthy distraction from the current state of the world.

The congratulations and birthday wishes came flooding in this morning for Lillard from all over the league and friends alike.
