Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard will grace the cover of NBA LIVE 15.

Damian visited our EA Canada studios in Vancouver for a covershoot, as well as an exclusive mo-cap session. Check out the behind-the-scenes photos.

The Capture Lab in Vancouver is all ready for our cover athlete to hit the court. 

Before Lillard hit the court, the All-Star recorded some facial animations for the Learn LIVE interactive tutorial in NBA LIVE 15.

Lillard gets things going by recreating his now-famous game-winner in the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Remember that, Blazers fans?

Reviewing some film from last year's breakout season. The Blazers improved their record by 21 games in 2013-14, advancing to the Western Conference Semifinals for the first time since 2000.

Damian made a stop at our NBA LIVE 15 face-scanning rig, which helps us capture player likeness and details like never before. Recap our visits toIndianapolisOklahoma City, and Los Angeles.

Not only is he one of the NBA's biggest rising stars, but he was also a pleasure to work with throughout the sessions.

Dame was engaged throughout our lengthy covershoot, mo-cap, and recording sessions, and was eager to provide feedback to the NBA LIVE team.

Last but not least, he showed off some of his new ink that will be visible in NBA LIVE 15.
