Former Maryland forward and current Portland Trail Blazer Jake Layman has a dope new Maryland-inspired custom jacket. Layman posted a picture of himself in the jacket to his Instagram account Sunday afternoon.
The jacket was created by Nathan DeVaughn, a designer who does custom denim work in Portland, Oregon. DeVaughn made it for Layman ahead of the Blazers' Vegas Summer League semifinal against the Memphis Grizzlies. Layman would go on to notch nine points and five rebounds in the Blazers' win.
The jacket features Raphael, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fame, in his signature red mask and Layman’s home No. 10 jersey, which works for both the Blazers and Terps colors.
Raphael can be found in the foreground on a knee with a ball in hand and accessories emblazoned in Maryland flag colors. The words "Fear the Turtle" circle the Terp’d-out Ninja Turtle with the Portland skyline in the background.
Layman had a solid summer league run, averaging 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals in Portland's eight game journey to the Vegas Finals. Layman followed up the nine-point semifinal with a 21-point effort in the championship game, though the Blazers would come up short against the Lakers.
Here’s hoping Layman sports this often during the season; the jacket is nothing but net.
