Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum See Their Moms Every Day

Not everyone gets off from a full day of work, kicks their feet up, and breaks down game film with their mother

Portland Trail Blazers starters Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum both live with their moms.

Casey Holdahl of the Blazers' Forward Center writes that it's not as weird as it sounds:

Both Lillard and McCollum have found that having mom around, and in Lillard’s case, most of his immediate family, doesn’t cramp one’s style as much as you might assume. "My brother went to school away from home, I went to school away from home, so now that we all live in Portland, in the same area, I’m happy to see them," said Lillard. "That’s who I want to be around when I don’t have to play basketball, when I don’t have practice and when I’m not on a road trip. That’s who I want to come home to. That’s what makes me happy."
