Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum is leaving it all out on the dance floor to get teammate Damian Lillard into the NBA All-Star Game. McCollum channels the classic dance scene from Napoleon Dynamite while wearing a “Vote for Damian” shirt in a new campaign video for Lillard:
McCollum says the video only took one take:
One take but I copied the video— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) January 10, 2019
Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl later said that Facebook removed the video due to it being inappropriate (seriously); McCollum had some fun with the news:
My hips dnt lie— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) January 10, 2019
Meyers Leonard also makes an appearance in the spot.
It was announced Thursday afternoon that Lillard is currently No. 6 among Western Conference guards in the All-Star fan vote, which makes up 50 percent of the All-Star starter formula.
