Damian Lillard helps guy with marriage proposal at Blazers preseason game


Damian Lillard didn’t play in the Blazers preseason win over the Clippers Sunday night — but he did pick up an assist.

Lillard took part in a pre-game marriage proposal courtside at the game, where Lucio Dalla Gasperina proposed to his girlfriend of a year and a half Madeleine Nava. Lillard had the ring and presented it, before the groom-to-be got down on one knee and asked the question. She said yes.

We wish them a lifetime of happiness.

(Note to guys thinking about this: Don’t. I have yet to meet one woman ever whose dream was to be proposed to at a sporting event. You may think it’s her dream, it’s not. Ask her. And you really don’t want to do it at a preseason game. Just a word of advice from a guy whose wife hasn’t left him.)
