It’s common to see a NBA player attend a concert to celebrate their birthday, but how often do you hear about a NBA player putting on a concert to celebrate their birthday?

This past Friday, on Damian Lillard’s 26th birthday, the Portland All-Star, who has been dropping hot Dame D.O.L.L.A tracks every few weeks for the past month, put on a hip-hop show at the Portland Crystal Ballroom. He even brought out teammate CJ McCollum and the Pelican’s Tim Frazier as special guests on stage.

Besides dropping rhymes at the concert, the “dropping dimes” star of Meet The Hoopers also received 512 dimes as a gift from State Farm.
