“Today is a great day for Milwaukee”… This was the Bucks’ modest but meaningful line when introducing Damian Lillard about two weeks ago, an exchange that came to shake up the waters of the NBA and drastically change the “map” of the favorites to win this year’s championship championship!
The 33-year-old guard spoke about her reaction of when he first fell upon the name of “deer” at the… table of discussions, explaining how discussions with his agent took place which finally led to the “marriage” of an unbeatable duo with Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“It’s crazy because 14 days ago my agent called me and asked me… ‘What do you think about Milwaukee?’ I’m not sure about Miami if it’s going to happen.” I thought it would be a good choice. I love John, I like them anyway. It was days before we spoke again, I knew the Bucks were a possibility. I just didn’t think it would actually happen.”said the “Dame” characteristically in an interview, essentially revealing once again, both the his love to John, as well as the fact that the Heat were his first choice.
