Over the weekend, the Team USA Basketball squad celebrated their gold medal triumph at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. But amidst the monumental moment, Damian Lillard faced trolling from his fellow countrymen and women.

Being an adidas endorsed player, Lillard really stood out when he was seen wearing the Nike-issued Team USA Basketball outfit sported by the entire team.

A’Ja Wilson of the gold-winning USA women’s basketball team posted a series of videos showing Lillard reluctantly being capture in his Nike outfit.
