Damian Lillard isn’t just one of the best guards in the NBA. The 6’3″ All-Star is one heck of a rapper—and a pretty good boxer, too.
This off-season, NBA players such as John Wall and Kristaps Porzingis have taken their talents to the boxing gym to help prepare them for the 2017-2018 season. As we all know, all of these NBA players are amazing athletes—but Lillard seems to be a little more skillful when it comes to pad work in the ring.
This summer, Lillard has been using boxing to cap off his conditioning workouts:
“Outside [of] hoop[s], no sport I’m a bigger fan of than boxing,” Lillard stated on his Instagram. It’s unlikely that the 27-year-old will call it quits on the court and jump into a pro ring, but he definitely has some skills throwing his hands.
Here’s some more footage of the multi-talented athlete getting busy in the ring:
