Damian Lillard shares his unenthusiastic take on “Freak Time” nickname: “Dame already wants outta Milwaukee”

Damian Lillard has joined the Milwaukee Bucks and is quickly settling in. Lillard was traded to the Bucks as part of an epic three-team trade that involved the Bucks, the Blazers, and the Suns.

The trade came as a surprise for many fans as Dame was heavily connected with a move to the Miami Heat. However, he ended up at the Bucks and will be pairing up with the best player in the NBA right now, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The fans have already given a nickname to the duo, “Freak Time” which Dame did not really like.

Lillard not invested in new nickname

With Damian Lillard’s arrival, the Milwaukee Bucks are now considered top contenders for the NBA Championship. Fans have high expectations for the duo of Giannis and Damian, as both players have expressed interest in playing together.

Dame and Giannis are exceptional talents in the league, and fans have given them a nickname: “Freak Time.” The “Freak” in “Freak Time” is derived from Giannis’ nickname, the “Greek Freak,” while “Time” comes from Lillard’s nickname, “Dame Time.”

However, Damian Lillard is not a huge fan of this nickname, and during an interview said, “ I’m not invested in that at all.” He expressed his dissatisfaction with the name and it is understandable because “Freak Time” would surely sound very weird to a non-NBA fan.

He commented, “Yep, Dame already wants outta Milwaukee nice job Giannis.”
