    Funny Damian Lillard is afraid of historical statues

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ba...2698--nba.html

    I like DC. I wana come back and visit the memorials even though I'm scared of statues
    People I'm only scared of historic statues. Abraham Lincoln , MLK, etc . Had a bad experience at the wax museum lmao

    Later, Lillard explained his fear to USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt:

    He has trouble pinpointing the exact time he fretted seeing statues and monuments but said the uneasy feeling was palpable during a visit to a wax museum two summers ago before his senior season at Weber State.

    "The last room was Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln — all these big-time historic people, and it looked just like them. Same size," he said. "They had music playing in the room to set the mood, and it just threw me off."

    "Ever since then I've done. Even at Lake Oswego (near Portland), I drive past the cemetery, and there's a statue of Jesus with his hands up. That even scared me. I don't mess with statues no more.

    "It's the idea that they're from so far back, and so big in our history. Just to see something that looks so close to them, it's weird. It freaks me out."

    Driving through D.C. Tuesday night with monuments lit up, "was crazy. All I could think of was Abraham Lincoln getting killed," Lillard said.

    I wonder if he's ever passed by the Sam Houston statue. That should put some fear in him.

    So when Portland plays here we need to all chip in and get court side tickets for the Jackson square street performers who act like statues. If we ever face them in playoffs this is happening.

    Don’t blink.
    Blink and you’re dead.
    Don’t turn your back.
    Don’t look away.
    And don’t blink.
    Good Luck.
