Hundreds of students from Oakland High School joined the basketball star to unveil improvements to the school’s gym, weight room and a new state-of-the-art recording studio for the music program.

In addition, Oakland High School and adidas surprised Dame during the event by retiring his Oakland High School #1 jersey which will now hang from the rafters. The celebration also included musical performances by Fetty Wap, Lil Uzi Vert and DJ Esco.

The celebration is a continuation of Damian Lillard’s All Rise adidas campaign that aims to support communities through Damian’s interests in basketball and music.
