PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Trail Blazers had a very special guest at the Moda Center on Monday night.
Damian Lillard Jr. proved to be the cutest good-luck charm imaginable. He warmed up the crowd (and Twitter) with his pregame antics, arriving in style at the arena with his dad, and then chasing a basketball across the court.
After the game, the Blazers' social media team drew the obvious parallel between Dame Jr. and Baby Yoda.
But the Prince of Portland saved his best for last, grabbing the postgame microphone in the locker room to enlighten us with his manners, his wit and his charm.
We're in love.
We put up a fun, little poll on Twitter this morning. Our intent? To prove that Dame Jr. is the cutest baby of them all. After all, the official position at KGW is we love Baby Yoda but we love Dame Jr. even more.
