VIDEO: Lillard Takes Over Twitter And NBATV

By sarahhecht Posted in: damianlillard

Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard, @dame_lillard on Twitter, is spending some quality time on the national stage this week. Last night he took over the TNT Twitter account, @NBAonTNT, during the Pacers/Knicks game, sharing his thoughts on the action and taking questions from fans.

This afternoon Dame was live in the NBATV studios with Vince Cellini, Dennis Scott and Patrick Ewing and later tonight he'll join Ernie, Shaq, Kenny and Chuck for a segment on the TNT broadcast. Busy day for the jet-setting Rookie of the Year!

Here's his stop with the fellas on NBATV talking the "chip" on his shoulder, balancing scoring and facilitating, his internal fire and his dreams of being a pro wrestler.

And here's the Q&A portion of Dame's Twitter takeover.

 It was time for a #LILLARDTAKEOVER: Dame on the Heat/Bulls series: On who he thinks the best dunker is: On which NBA team he enjoys playing against: On playing against his idols: On his favorite moment of his rookie season: On how he spent his first NBA paycheck: On how he celebrated being named Rookie of the Year:

  2. ".... his dreams of being a pro wrestler."

    That´s what we never understand from our old -but good to live in- Europe.
    Wrestling is more "theater" than sport in our opinion. May be when you are a very very good player you begin to feel sport as a kind of game. I do not know.
