Damian Lillard, the star player of the Portland Trail Blazers, showed off his musical talents on an airplane while he was stuck there. He and his teammates created a demo rap song as the plane was stuck for seven hours due to bad weather. Despite their canceled flight, they had their vibe going as the team kept their spirits high, and Lillard led the charge with his rapping skills.
