Damian Lillard may not have made the final cut for Team USA, but he did make the cover of a video game.
Today, Portland Trail Blazers Point Guard Damian Lillard was officially announced as the EA SPORTS NBA LIVE 15 cover athlete. Lillard’s marketability has risen exponentially over the past two years, and especially after his game 6, series-clinching game-winning 3-pointer against Houston.
In case you were wondering, Lillard is wearing the adidas Crazy Light Boost on the cover. For the full EA SPORTS cover shoot, click HERE.
Being from Portland, having an athlete from my team is really cool. Congratulations, Dame!
NBA LIVE 15 is available Tuesday, October 7, on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
