OAKLAND, CA – Damian Lillard gave back to his alma mater, Oakland High School, in a big way after the school retired his jersey yesterday (December 16).
The Portland Trail Blazers point guard enlisted Lil Uzi VertFetty Wap and DJ Esco to perform at a special concert for the students. The stars all wore Lillard’s Dame 3 sneakers.
Lillard — who released his debut album, The Letter O, in October — partnered with adidas to upgrade the school’s gym and weight room. He also provided a studio for the students to record their own music in.
Tonight, the Trail Blazers take on the Golden State Warriors at Oakland’s Oracle Arena. Lillard is averaging 27.7 points per game, fifth in the league.
