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.

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).
