NBA: All Star Game-Team Stephen Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Damian Lillard will finally make his return to the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday as part of Team Stephen Curry. While not participating in any of the All-Star Saturday events like the Three-Point Contest or Dunk Contest, Lillard has kept busy since arriving in L.A. Let’s check in on what the All-Star’s been up to:

Lillard visited the court of one of his sponsors, JBL Audio:

He held a special shoe release for his Bape collaboration:

Lillard promoted the Special Olympics, something he’s been an avid proponent of, during the Celebrity Game:

He took on DeMar DeRozan in NBA 2K and came out victorious:

He participated in All-Star practice…

…yet didn’t recognize Ed Sheeran’s vocals:

The definite highlight of Lillard coverage this weekend comes from Blazers reporter Brooke Olzendam, who caught up with Lillard to talk all things All-Star (it’s worth the five minutes):

The NBA All-Star Game will air at 5 p.m. PT Sunday on TNT as Team Steph (Lillard’s team) takes on Team LeBron.
