Herbert: Damian Lillard's Mother Enjoyed Son's Blazers Debut

James Herbert of Hardwood Paroxysm caught a few minutes with Gina Johnson, mother of Trail Blazers rookie guard Damian Lillard, during Portland's Sunday night's 2012 Las Vegas Summer League debut win over the New Orleans Hornets. ---------------------------------- "I’m so happy that I’m here with him on his first game really playing for the NBA," Johnson says. "You know, I mean it’s not really playing with the team but it’s playing with people with the same caliber of skill. And then playing with people where he don’t have to work so hard ‘cause, see, I’ve been watching him play on a team where he had to do a whole lot. He had a good team, but it wasn’t like a lot of people there that was really functioning at their position. Because looking at him working with [No. 11 pick Meyers Leonard] … Leonard is five times, to me, the position he had there. So, to me, now he can just do his thing. And then to see him out here playing good, I’m happy." ---------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
