Damian Lillard may have the best bubble setup yet.
As NBA players begin to make the Orlando bubble their new home, we have seen a variety of things come down South to pass the time when these guys can rarely see anyone else. From LEGO sets to video game consoles, players are certainly taking advantage of the bubble lifestyle.
Damian Lillard, who has built quite a second career under his music alter ego DAME D.O.L.L.A., has managed to continue producing music with a makeshift recording studio in his Disney hotel room.
On Instagram, Lillard revealed his setup with the hashtag, “JustTurned30” to celebrate his 30th birthday. In a story from the Associated Press, Lillard called the setup “simple” but more than suitable to make new music.
What would you bring to the Orlando bubble?
There were also fears of Lillard becoming the latest casualty of the NBA’s now-famous snitch hotline, but that won’t be the case.
"I saw people saying that there would be complaints of him recording music, but I don’t have any speakers. Everything is in the headphone speakers …I’m rapping out loud, but not screaming to the top of my lungs. Nobody is going to hear me rapping."
Uncoincidently, just one day after Lillard’s post, he released his latest single, entitled “Home Team,” which expresses the connections within the black community, specifically among his own hometown of Oakland and playing home of Portland.
Hopefully, we get to hear what Lillard is up to in Orlando sooner or later. Looking at where the Blazers stand in the West right now, 3.5 games back of the eighth seed, the answer looks to be sooner. Perhaps having his music in-hand will inspire a late playoff run instead, or at least that’s what Charles Barkley thinks.
