The Portland Trail Blazers were on fire during their time in the NBA bubble and no one was  more exciting to watch than point guard Damian Lillard.  Court-Side Moms, joined by guest co-host, Amanda Mina, is excited to welcome Damian’s mom, Gina Johnson, to today’s episode. 

After being named NBA Bubble MVP, a season ending injury put Damian on the bench and Gina talks about how they are coping with the many ups and downs of the past few months.  It takes a village - many of Damian’s family moved with him to Portland when he was drafted and we hear how that has changed his life and theirs. 

Gina shares stories of Damian’s early years,  how his grit and determination helped him overcome challenges on the way to draft night and a career in the NBA.  She also talks about what it’s been like to be an NBA mom these past 8 years and we hear about Damian’s upcoming wedding, the Adidas endorsement and the Dame 6 sneaker deal.  An entertaining and fun filled episode you won’t want to miss.
