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 Lillards 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 Lillards performance in the bubble, the veteran point guard has left the Orlando bubble for further examination on injured knee.
The sprained knee reportedly wont 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.
