Damian Lillard is one of the NBA’s brightest and quickly emerging superstars. Coming off his Rookie of the Year campaign, and signing the third richest sneaker contract, Lillard is ready to take the reigns and become a staple in the NBA. However, Lillard doesn’t want to be one of those greats, who never won a ring.
Lillard teamed up with his sneaker sponsor, adidas, and Foot Locker for their latest commercial spot, “No Rings”. With some help from some of the greatest athletes to never win a championship including, Barry Sanders, Chris Webber, Ladainian Tomlinson, and Karl Malone, the commercial spot takes a funny jab at these legends who unfortunately couldn’t win on the biggest stage.
With Lillard’s latest contract from adidas, a specialized shoe, and commercial spots sprouting up all over the place, we could be looking at our next face of the league, to join the likes of LeBron, KD, and Kobe.
