Adidas made this short film about Portland Trail Blazer star Damian Lillard that looks into how the basketball legend got to where he is today.
Damian is known for his ice-cold persona. He always keeps a cool head on the court, never rushes a shot and is always one step ahead of his opponents. In this film, we hear how he cultivated that style of play. He reveals that it’s mostly inherited from his father, who helped to coach Dame from a young age. He recalls hitting an incredible 3 pointer whilst he was at school that made everyone in the gym stand up in celebration. But his Dad stayed seated, letting Damian know that he wanted even more from him.
The player also recalls some of his most impressive shots from his career. He’s a known perfectionist and puts in a huge amount of time to make sure that all of his shots land. One of his highlights seemed like a miracle to everyone else, but Dame tells us how he knew he was always going to make that shot, because he had put in the hard work and preparation that allowed him to achieve the impossible.
