AP – Damian Lillard says he will spend most of his downtime working on recording music while inside the NBA bubble.

The Portland Trailblazers point guard turned part of his suite into a mini recording studio at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex, where his team will make a push for a playoff berth.

But under his rap persona Dame D.O.L.L.A., the All-Star player is looking to lay down tracks when he’s not occupied with basketball.
