Damian Lillard shoots his shot with a special WNBA request

Trail Blazers

Damian Lillard is a superstar. 

He is the face of the Portland Trail Blazers and one of the best players in the NBA. 

In his spare time, he has carved a special place in the rap game as Dame D.O.L.L.A and his shoe game will leave you stylin' and profilin'. 

But even a person of Lillard's stature can't be stopped from geeking out as a true fan. 

Lillard showed us his fan side over the weekend, tweeting about two of his favorite sports topics: Boxing and the Raiders.

But a quick look at his Instagram story is where Lillard's true fanboy showed itself. 

It was there that Lillard sent a simple request to WNBA stars Candace Parker, Diana Taurasi, and Sydney Colson.

Can I get my jerseys signed, please...

Luckily for Lillard, he got a quick response to his request. 

Sydney Colson responded with the classic "does a bear s*** in the woods?" Basically, yeah, he didn't even have to ask. 

As for Candace Parker, she went the much smarter route: Barter.

If Lillard wants her to sign his jersey, it's gonna cost him a pair of Buzz Lightyear Dame 7s.

So far, Lillard is shooting two for two, with Diana Taurasi yet to respond.

Taurasi isn't overly active on social media, but something tells me the G.O.A.T will come up clutch for Dame. 

 

Let's not forget Lillard showed up to a game in the bubble wearing a Diane Taurasi shirt.

Real recognize real.
