Chris Palmer: You’re quickly developing a reputation for being unflappable. Where did that trait come from?
Damian Lillard: That’s just the type of person I am. There’s no reason to be scared out there. It’s just a basketball game, so I never get worried or rattled by the situation. If you’re going to win, you’re going to win. If you’re going to lose, you’re going to lose. I want to win games, but I’m not affected by any situation. My emotions go up and down like everybody else’s, but I don’t feel the need to show the world.
