Introduction to NBA Summer League

Editor's Note: We're hosting a one-day $7,000 fantasy baseball league on FanDuel today. It's only $10 to join and first place wins $900. Enter by 1:10pm ET (today, July 12th). Here's the link.

I'm pretty sure that this is the definition of a baller on a budget.

Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard signed a new five-year, $120-plus million extension on Thursday, making him one of the highest-paid point guards in the NBA. For a lot of people, they would want to start spending that money right away, but Lillard seems just fine with waiting until the checks actually come in.

Rather than take a private jet for fly first class, the 24-year-old decided to take a commercial flight to Portland's NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and sit in coach.



Fortunately for the 6'3" point guard, they at least got the exit row. The extra leg room is crucial.



There are a couple of possible reasons Lillard might have decided to take a commercial flight. Maybe he is focused on fiscal responsibility, or maybe he is just saving some money for the rest of his trip in Vegas. Regardless, if Lillard keeps saving his money like this, he won't have to worry about money once his career is over.
