Reports reveal that Damian Lillard’s Toyota branch in Oregon won’t just be your ordinary car shop. According to a Toyota representative, Lillard “infused his style into the facility by overseeing the installation of custom Pop-A-Shot games, themed ping pong tables, autographed memorabilia, and more.”
Additional reports reveal that those who buy a car from Lillard’s dealership will be automatically part of the “Damian Lillard VIP Club.” Members of this club have preferential access to the star guard’s events, with opportunities to win meet-and-greets and photo ops.
They also have exclusive offers to attend Trail Blazers games, VIP experience with Yamhill Country wineries, Evergreen Space Museum, opportunities to win tickets to Portland Timbers matches, or Portland area concerts. And once a year, Lillard himself will invite 40 customers at random to be his guest at a game in the 100 level section.
So for the fan who asked the autograph, yes he will definitely get his wish. Plus a whole lot more.
