The 2020 All-Star weekend is full of fun, excitement, drama and music.
Five-time NBA All-Star Damian Lillard, who would not be able to participate after suffering a groin injury, would still be involved in the weekend in a way that no other has done before...
Perform on stage.
This isn't the first time Dame D.O.L.L.A. has taken the stage, but it was memorable in more ways than one. It was what he was wearing that stood out alongside his music and musical guests: a leather jacket with the words "Mamba Forever" on the back.

Damian Lillard (Dame DOLLA) is really performing his rap music on All-Star weekend, rocking a “Mamba Forever” jacket.— Legion Hoops (@LegionHoops) February 16, 2020
Best league in the world.
This tribute to the late Kobe and Gigi Bryant isn't the only way the All-Star weekend is celebrating their lives: Team LeBron and Team Giannis will be sporting jersey No. 24 jersey or No. 2 jersey during the All-Star game.

I think the NBA giving Dame a platform in our space to showcase his talent and passion for something other than hoop made my night. Kudos— Lou Williams (@TeamLou23) February 16, 2020
