Who says small guards can’t get up? Damian Lillard certainly thinks he can fly, as he showed the Phoenix Suns team.
This play started off with Blazers teammate Shabazz Napier shooting a wide-open three pointer in the corner. This unfortunately clanged off the side of the rim and off the backboard. From the three-point line, Damian Lillard was timing his footsteps as he ran towards the hoop. Damian then skied above the rim and grabbed the ball with both hands. This shook Marquese Chriss and Devin Booker, who didn’t jump more than a few inches off the ground. After collecting the ball, Lillard packed the dunk with his right hand. The road crowd oohed thereafter, as the Portland bench did their best to contain themselves.
The sneakers Lillard wore for this massive putback dunk was the adidas Dame 4. This signature stuck the formula of Damian’s line, with a small price point ($115) and decent tech. BOUNCE is used in the midsole for responsive cushioning. A open-holed mesh is featured on the upper for breathability throughout. A wavy sole covers for great traction, which is also to made to look like the waveforms of music, playing off Dame DOLLA’s music career.
Damian rocked the “Rip City” home colorway of the Dame 4, which you can find here.
