adidas News Site | Press Resources for all Brands, Sports and Innovations : Damian Lillard
“There’s no rules to who I can be and how I do it.” One of the most multidimensional athletes in the game, Damian Lillard stays true to himself and refuses to be defined by one thing. The Oakland native’s story began as an overlooked high school recruit who rose to prominence as a standout prospect at mid-major Weber State University. After leading the country in scoring as a Weber State Wildcat, Dame was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers as the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and later earned Rookie of the Year honors. In eight seasons, the five-time NBA All-Star has established himself as one of the most dangerous point guards in the league and a compassionate leader in his community.
 
Entering his rookie season, Dame joined the adidas family. He’d lace up a variety of footwear, including the Top Ten 2000 and Crazylight Boost, prior to launching his signature collection in 2015 with the D Lillard 1. Leading up to his most recent launch of Dame 6 in 2019, Dame’s signature colorways have been rooted in all aspects of his game, life and world.
 
Off the court, Dame is a celebrated recording artist who performs under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A. He released his third album this year titled “Big D.O.L.L.A.”
