  It didn’t take very long for Adidas to capitalize on Portland Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard’s Rookie of the Year award victory. 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. Damian Lillard Rookie of the Year shirts will be available at adidas.com soon for $25 and Damian’s Crazyquick shoes are available now for $140.
