Damian ‘Dame Dolla’ Lillard was easily one of the highlights of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Orlando bubble.

Sadly for fans, Lillard and the Trailblazers were promptly dispatched by an Anthony Davis- and LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers squad after the All-Star injured his right knee (which thankfully turned out to be a mild strain) and failed to return to the series.

Lillard says his establishment is “not your normal Toyota dealership,” and it shows. Its logo features a basketball, and some of Lillard’s signature shoes are also displayed inside a glass case.

The Dame 6 retails for about $110 (P5,300) a pair in the US, so it’s safe to assume that Lillard must have easily dropped a couple thousand dollars on hooking his personnel up. Do you agree that this look makes for a good dealership uniform? Sound off in the comments.
