Damian Lillard is used to being looked over. It’s something that happened to him in High School, the NBA Draft, Team USA summer camps, and even this year’s All-Star Game. Dame wanted to remind everyone that he’s one of the game’s best young stars after the mid-season break by lighting up the league-best Warriors, blowing out the Western Conference juggernaut while becoming the quickest to record a 50 point game. It only took Dame 31 minutes and 6 seconds to log his career high against one of the NBA’s best defenses and the overall flurry definitely served as a reminder to how dangerous a weapon Lillard is on the court.
The rest of the talk is just noise. That’s the theme of the latest adidas D Lillard 2, nicknamed the “Static” for its black and white interwoven threads complete with bold contrast midsole speckling. “I don’t need validation – they’ve seen what I can do out there,” Dame said after the recent Warriors game. “As a man, I’ve grown to rise above it all and block out the noise. I’ll keep pushing, keep working and soon enough they’ll wake up.” Don’t let the D Lillard 2 go under your radar. The pair is available February 27th for $105 from select retailers.
