It is easy to lose sight of how much joy the Trail Blazers bring the city of Portland when the results aren’t always ideal on the court. The Blazers’ recent visit to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital provided a powerful look at how the team, and its players are tied into the fabric of the city.
On Sunday, the Trail Blazers released the highlights of their visit:
"The most important part of the day was coming to @SHCPortland (and @OHSUDoernbecher) and to give these kids and families a day away from medicine and the hard times." pic.twitter.com/1ZOyY68MOD— Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) December 16, 2018
Individually, Damian Lillard received praise for taking time to see children that were unable to join the majority of the group in the main meeting area.
On a rainy Sunday in Portland, this video captures all the feels.
