NBA players across the league have dealt with this kind of behavior for years, but the league’s superstars are acknowledging hecklers’ presence now more than ever. Portland Trail Blazers All Star Damian Lillard kicked things up a notch for Game 2 in Denver last night, as he broke out a heckler-inspired colorway of his Adidas Dame 5.
The special edition kicks come decked out in Blazers colors equipped with zip-lip and other emojis, along with the message, “Hecklers Get Dealt With.”
Lillard, who has had his fair share of interactions with hecklers over the years, had a pedestrian performance by his standards in Game 2, but the Blazers still picked up a 97-90 victory to tie the series at 1-1.
