    I remember the story about how he called Damian Lillard for a ride to practice super casually like he wasn’t the 15th guy on the roster calling the star player lol. But they became friends which definitely shows Lillard is down to earth and down to drive a rookie to practice. I hope Montero gets some PT with the Pistons, looking forward to seeing him play.

      Cool story. I hadn’t heard that one. I know Dame is still close with Tim Frazier. Seems like a super down to Earth guy who isn’t above hanging out with players way below his skill level. I still haven’t heard a single negative thing about him as a person

        Craziest thing was it was a blackout day too so the coaching staff was encouraging players to stay home lol. That’s why I really love the Blazers, they’re always going to work to get better and they have really good team chemistry. I definitely agree, he’s a great leader and cool dude, not to mention super talented in both basketball and music. I’m super glad to have a player like that.
