Why Does k.d lang Love Portland? Because She Can Walk to Blazers Games
Reason no. 5 to love Portland right now.
By WW Contributor
"Probably the most important Portland experience for me is walking over the Broadway Bridge and going to see my Blazers. That, to me, is an incredible thing—that I can walk to the game. I just love the atmosphere of Rip City, and I love the team right now. In a way, they're better than they've been the last few years. They've been in the top 8 for the whole year pretty much. There were some hiccups, but the motivation of the team seems really in place. Every player is playing with a lot of heart, and that's really all you can ask for. And Damian [Lillard]'s commitment to Portland and his love for Portland is so infectious and beautiful. I'm just really into the Blazers." —k.d. lang
