Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard joined Ernie Johnson from Inside the NBA to chat about how things have been going during the COVID-19 shutdown, his upcoming mixtape, and his career from high school to the NBA and the possibility of season jumping straight to the playoffs.

“Not only are we the ninth seed, we have one of the easier schedules in our final 15, 16 games and the team in the eighth spot has the toughest. We’re looking at that like how can you just go straight into the playoffs when we’re in the position that we’re in and they’re up against what they’re up against,” Lillard said.
