Damian Lillard s creative identity highlighted in new sneaker

Manila, Philippines — All-Star, rapper, father, brother and son. Designed to embody all facets of Damian Lillard’s creativity and persona, adidas Basketball today officially unveils Dame 6. The latest edition of Dame’s signature line introduces a variety of energetic colorways, including “Ruthless” and “Hecklers,” which tell the story of Lillard’s dichotomy on-and-off the court.  “I come out to compete against people, but I don’t say a whole lot. I don’t talk trash, I just go at them every opportunity I get,” said Lillard. “There’s a way to go about it in life and in basketball, being compassionate and ruthless. It’s important to have both; I was raised that way.”  When it’s ‘Dame Time,’ Lillard is known for his tenacity. The first colorway in the collection features the word “Ruthless” proudly painted in bold script on the medial midsole. The black textile mesh upper, providing breathability, is highlighted with split hues of neon pink and green and accented with a black suede overlay on the toe box.  Drawing inspiration from Dame's ability to quiet the opposition when he knocks down a big shot in the clutch, the "Hecklers” pack is centered around four team colors and features a graphic print with zipped up emojis. Each colorway is designed with a “Get Dealt With" message and the final touch includes the word “Hecklers” strategically placed on the heel tab for all to see as Lillard walks off the court.  “Early in the design process, the many sides of Dame’s personality emerged during our conversations with Dame – he’s a leader, a family man, a businessman and more, but when he hits the court, a different side comes out,” explained Jimi Taylor, Senior Footwear Designer for adidas Basketball. “The silhouette embodies Dame’s multi-dimensional persona from both sides of the shoe. The outside speaks to Dame’s focus, while the interior peels back the layers to showcase the inner workings of the shoe and celebrates Dame’s ruthless mindset on the court.”  This is the first model in the Dame series to feature LIGHTSTRIKE technology, the super-light midsole that provides the perfect balance of lightweight cushioning and on-court responsiveness. LIGHTSTRIKE ensures enhanced full-length comfort, support and response – perfect for Lillard’s lethal combination of relentless drives to the hoop, or sudden step-back threes.  Crafted for a precision fit and lateral support, Dame 6 delivers a lock-down feel through an anatomical webbed lacing system. The comfortable, breathable upper is powered by a translucent outsole that emphasizes the new traction pattern, dynamic heel edge and rounded edges that have been designed for unparalleled traction and multidirectional movements.  Dame 6 “Ruthless” officially drops November 29, followed by “Hecklers” on January 18. Additional colorways will be announced at a later date, all available for P6,000 at and select retailers. Follow the conversation @adidashoops on Twitter and Instagram with #Dame6.  .....»»

SEA Games: Gilas shoots way to nice 69-point win over Myanmar

MANILA — For a while, Myanmar actually looked like it was up to something. And then Gilas just shot down any doubt whatsoever. The Philippines flexed its basketball muscles against Myanmar anew, taking a 136-67 win Saturday at the MOA Arena to end prelims action for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. In the opening period, Myanmar didn’t look like the team that lost to Gilas by a combined 202 points in two games two years ago. Gilas only took a 32-24 lead after one and it would have been only five if Marcio Lassiter didn’t hit a late triple. But that conversion from deep proved to be the sign as Lassiter and Mattew Wright shot the lights out in the second, leading Gilas’ 45-12 run. By halftime, Marcio and Matthew had a combined 10 triples and Gilas had a 77-36 lead. It was cruise control in the second half then as the Philipines got the 69-point decision for a clean 3-0 mark heading to the semifinals. Matthew Wright was the high man for Gilas, finishing with 29 points off eight triples. Vic Manuel added 24 for the Philipine while Troy Rosario was good for 16 points. Kiefer Ravena and Marcio Lassiter contributed 15 each. Gilas had 43 assists in the win, led by a team-high nine from Chris Ross. The Philippines also only had one turnover. Aung Myint led Myanmar with 28 points and seven rebounds. Gilas Pilipinas will take on Indonesia in the semifinals Monday.   The Scores: PHILIPPINES 136 -- Wright 29, Manuel 24, Rosario 16, Lassiter 15, Ravena 15, Aguilar 12, Slaughter 10, Tenorio 9, Standhardinger 6, Ross 0. MYANMAR 67 -- Myint 28, Ta 14, Justin 6, Aung 5, Tun Tun 4, Sar 4, La Ja 4, Zaw 2, Zaya 0, Wine 0, Oo 0, Htut 0. Quarters: 32-24, 77-36, 104-49, 136-67.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: Pinoy teams falter in 9-ball doubles semis

MANILA — The dream All-Filipino Finals in billiards men’s 9-ball doubles for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games will not push through. Philippines 1 with Carlo Biado and Johann Chua got pummeled by Singapore in the semifinals Wednesday at Manila Hotel Tent, losing 3-9. The pair of Lian Han Toh and Aloysius Yap raced to a 7-0 lead against the Pinoys and never let go. Biado and Chua managed to get three racks but it wasn’t enough to stop the Singaporean’s march to the gold medal game. In the other 9-ball doubles semifinal, Philippines 2 with Warren Kiamco and Jeffrey Ignacio lost a close one to Myanmar, 8-9. It was a close match throughout but Kiamco and Ignacio managed to take an 8-7 lead late. However, Aung Moe Thu and Kyaw Myint Phone rallied to win the next two racks for Myanmar. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: All-PBA Gilas pummels Singapore by 52 points

MANILA — Gilas Pilipinas makes a great impression in its 2019 Southeast Asian Games opener. Sending an all-PBA team for the first time in SEA Games history, Gilas pounded Singapore Wednesday at the MOA Arena, scoring a comfortable 110-58 victory. Winners of the last 12 SEA Games gold medals, Gilas’ quest for a lucky 13 straight is officially underway with the 52-point decision, which was certainly a far cry from two years ago when the Philippines struggled to put a pesky Singapore team in the semifinals in Kuala Lumpur, 68-60. Stanley Pringle scored Gilas’ first straight points to set the tone for the national team. Matthew Wright then hit three straight triples late in the first quarter and Gilas never looked back, coasting the rest of the way.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
