Damian Lillard honors Kobe Bryant with song on NBA 2K21 soundtrack
The song will be featured on NBA 2K21. Lillard teased the track on Monday:
When I found out I was gonna be on the @NBA2K cover the same year Kobe was on the legends cover, I decided use my access to the 2K soundtrack to pay tribute to Kobe through music.

Kobe Bryant had a lot of respect for Damian Lillard as Dame was making a name for himself with the Blazers. The Los Angeles Lakers legend always admired players who worked hard on their craft and loved to get better since that’s how he was at a young age.
Bryant would certainly be proud of the player Lillard has become for the Blazers. The five-time All-Star is one of the best players in the NBA and is shooting long-range bombs with ease now. Defenders have to start guarding Lillard as soon as he crosses the half-court line or else they’ll likely get embarrassed.
Lillard will play in Game 4 despite dealing with a dislocated left finger. He’s averaging 28.7 points through the first three games of the series, which is a bit down from his incredible numbers throughout the eight seeding games.
Damian Lillard finished the 2019-20 regular season with averages of 30.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game. He has a good shot of making one of the three All-NBA teams.
