Apparently 'tis the season for professional athletes to reveal their deepest fears.
First it was Kansas City Chief's safety Eric Berry revealing he is deathly afraid of horses.
Now, Portland Trailblazers rookie sensation Damian Lillard says he is petrified (bad pun) of statues.
I don't even have any jokes to add here, because Damian is right to be afraid of the statues.
In fact we all should be afraid. Very afraid.

*If you are not a Dr. Who fan and have no idea what I am talking about, you're missing out! "Blink" is on Netflix instant and it's one of the best episodes (if not the best) of the modern series. I've never looked at a statue the same way since. Season 3, Episode 11.
