Blazers star Damian Lillard hilariously trolled by WNBA MVP for unfortunate fit for Team USA
Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard and Team USA took home the gold on Friday night after beating France in the final of the Tokyo Olympics. However, that didn’t stop WNBA star A’Ja Wilson from trolling her US compatriot again following the big win.
As most people know, Dame is an Adidas athlete. However, Team USA sports full Nike tracksuits. Wilson made it her mission to annoy the Blazers guard for having to wear Adidas’s rival brand. Take a look:

In all seriousness, it doesn’t like Lillard really cares. He’s got a smile on his face and is just going along with the joke. The Blazers veteran does look extremely fly in that all-white fit though. Let’s just hope Adidas doesn’t get upset he’s wearing their rival’s clothes.
Lillard, who is coming off another tremendous season with the Blazers, averaged just over 11 points in Tokyo, helping Team USA claim the ultimate prize. The trade rumors back in the States continue to surround him as well, but the veteran has made it clear he’s happy in Portland.
It’s good to see the USA athletes having some fun together and joking around though. While it’s all business on the court, enjoying the Olympics is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Now, Dame will prepare for another season with the Blazers.
