Damian Lillard is getting the recognition and respect he so justly deserves.
During a commercial break on the ‘Dan Patrick Show' Friday a box of fresh merchandise.
The hoodie rocks ‘Dame' on the front and ‘PDX' on the back with tiny lettering saying ‘Respect' that fits inside both words.
Obviously, the ‘Respect' on the hoodie is in reminiscences of Lillard's clutch performance against the Dallas Mavericks when he tied a career-high 61 point performance to help keep Portland in the playoff race.
As much as we all loved Lillard's performance in the bubble, the veteran point guard has left the Orlando bubble for further examination on injured knee.
The sprained knee reportedly won't require surgery, but his season is over.
He will be missed, but Lillard is more than happy to see some familiar faces as he heals up.
Glad to see Lillard is getting the respect we all know he deserves.
