A day after Lillard was officially crowned Kia NBA Rookie of the Year for the 2012-13, Adidas unveiled some special edition shirts to commemorate the achievement.
Adidas basketball made the following statement:
The “Endorsed By” t-shirt features a close-up graphic of Damian over a satellite view of his hometown of Oakland, Calif. The “Townbiz” t-shirt is also Oakland inspired, featuring the popular local mantra and a crest with a satellite view of the city and clasped hands to represent the “Fly Guyz” – Damian’s name for his close circle of friends.
Fans that can’t get enough of Damian can catch him in the latest adidas Basketball campaign “Quick Ain’t Fair,” a new TV commercial for the Crazyquick basketball shoe which begins airing tonight in conjunction with the shoe’s retail launch.
