Damian Lillard's legal conundrum as divorce proceedings meet NBA obligations.
Damian Lillard has found himself in a legal conundrum as his divorce proceedings clash with his professional basketball commitments.
The court hearing for his divorce from Kay'La Lillard, his college sweetheart-turned-wife, was scheduled for November 24, 2023.
However, Damian Lillard, who is an integral part of the Milwaukee Bucks, requested a postponement due to an NBA Regular Season game against the Washington Wizards.
An Oregon judge has granted Lillard's request, allowing him to prioritize his basketball career by postponing the hearing to a date yet to be determined.
Lillard's request stemmed from a contractual obligation that compelled him to be in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, for the crucial NBA game and its related preparations, which coincided with the original hearing date.
The divorce between Damian Lillard and Kay'La Lillard is marked by allegations of "irreconcilable differences" and revolves around their three children.
