Damian Lillard Wears Oakland A's Jersey Ahead of Game 1 Vs. Warriors

Damian Lillard is taking this Oakland homecoming thing seriously.

Hours before Game 1 of the Western Conference finals between the Warriors and Trail Blazers, Dame made his way onto Portland's bus in downtown San Francisco -- but did so donning some local sportswear.

Lillard, of course, grew up in Oakland, and will have a chance to play what could be the final game ever at Oracle Arena, should the Blazers go on to win the series.

His wardrobe choice places the A's in an awkward position: support the hometown hero, or the neighbor next door?

They clearly felt the pressure:

Game 1 tips off Tuesday at 6 p.m. on ESPN (pregame show starts on NBC Sports Bay Area at 5 p.m. and streaming on the MyTeams app).
