CHICAGO, Ill. – Former Weber State and current Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard performed during NBA All-Star weekend.

Dame D.O.L.L.A. rapped during the All-Star festivities at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday, February 15.

The Blazers star officially began his musical career in 2015 when he released his first single entitled “Soldier in the Game.”

Since then, Dame D.O.L.L.A. has dropped three full-length albums.

Five-Time NBA All-Star

Lillard was named as an NBA All-Star for the fifth time of his career this season. Despite suffering an injury earlier in the week, the Blazers guard was able to participate in All-Star weekend.

He suffered a right groin strain in Portland’s 111-104 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on February 12. After the game, he announced that he wouldn’t play in the NBA All-Star Game or participate in the three-point contest.

On February 13, the NBA named Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker as Lillard’s replacement for both events.

Lillard This Season

Lillard is No. 4 among NBA players in scoring this season.

Through 53 games, he is averaging a career-high 29.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, career-high 7.9 assists, and 1.0 steals per contest.

NBA All-Star Events

Saturday night’s all-star events included the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, MTN DEW 3-Point Contest, and AT&T Slam Dunk contest.

The NBA All-Star Game takes place on Sunday, February 16 at 6:20 p.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on TNT.
