During pregame warmups, the official Blazers Twitter account recorded a sighting of Headband Dame. He continued to rock the headband as Sunday's game vs. the Heat tipped off, and as Brooke Olzendam explained during the game broadcast, he did it for a good reason. 

"It is in honor of former Blazer and one of his closest friends, Tim Frazier, getting a 10-day contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. That is what I hear," Olzendam reported.
