“I’ve always practiced game-winning shots since I was a kid,” Damian Lillard says, via press release. “My brother and I used to count down the finals seconds, and we wouldn’t leave the hoop until we made it. It’s a routine that’s helped shape my mentality in those final moments of a game. I’ll just point to the watch, and you know what time it is.”

That’s what inspired the new colorway of the D Lillard 2s. The red upper has a shot clock print to tell the story of Dame’s clutch abilities.
