Damian Lillard In Adidas 'Creators Never Follow' Commercial

Not getting enough Lillard? The Portland star appears in his own installment of adidas' latest ad campaign.

Adidas debuted their latest commercial in the ‘Creators Never Follow’ campaign on Tuesday morning. The ad spot features none other than Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard sharing a tailor-made rhyme for the occasion.

Be a king in ya mind, but do the work of a servant
With a purpose on the mission you get to what you deserving
If it’s worth it you’d be on straight and narrow instead of swerving
Ignore the dream killers and doubters cuz they ain’t perfect.

Per the adidas release:

"This message truly shares who I am. I put in work on and off the court and focus on what I can control every day to create my path," Lillard explained. "You’ve got to be willing to take risks and gamble on yourself. It just comes down to believing in your vision and never letting outside noise worry you."

Previous installments in this campaign include videos featuring NBA star James Harden of the Houston Rockets, and footballers Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona, Gareth Bale of Real Madrid, Thomas Müller of Bayern Munich, and Mesut Özil of Arsenal.
