Damian Lillard continued his run as the face of the Portland Trail Blazers franchise last night, appearing on the Late Late Show with James Corden. He talked about his buzzer-beater against the Houston Rockets in the 2014 NBA Playoffs, a Vegan diet, and his upcoming rap album, among other things. Lillard guested with Welsh actor Taron Egerton. Corden’s format keeps both guests on the stage at the same time. Enjoy hearing “Damian Lillard” spoken in a Welsh accent.
Here’s the intro segment that talks about Portland’s Lillard-themed corn maze.
A bit with Lillard and Corden staff writer Ian Karmel talking about “The Shot”.
And a segment with more direct interviewing of Lillard without as much Egerton.
Overall it felt like Lillard represented himself decently, but got buried a little under the chaos of the group interview and the pre-scripted comedy. What did you think? Comment below.
