Damian Lillard’s work ethic has never been in question, and it’s likely one of the reasons why the Milwaukee Bucks signed him from the Blazers, in addition to his exceptional talent. He has already started preparing for the upcoming training camp, giving fans a glimpse of what to expect in a matter of days.
Damian has the fans talking as he fulfills their long-standing wish of joining the Bucks. Fans and enthusiasts alike are surprised to see Damian already utilizing the Bucks’ training facility to make some impressive shots.
Damian Lillard demonstrates his readiness while taking shots in the Bucks facility
Damian Lillard wasted no time in getting on the court for the Milwaukee Bucks. The seven-time All-Star got traded to the Bucks on Wednesday, ending a lengthy saga that dominated headlines throughout the summer. He had his welcome parade with the team on Saturday, and after the event, Lillard went to the team’s practice facility. A tweet from Clutch Points reports that Dame has started working already, “Damian Lillard getting up shots in the Bucks facility for the 1st time”
Lillard was seen working on his skills, demonstrating his sharpshooting abilities, and adding some flashy dribbling moves. It seems like the weight of the past few months has been lifted off his shoulders, and now he has a chance to contribute to the contending Bucks team. In the 2022-23 season, Milwaukee had a 58-24 record, securing the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. However, they suffered a disappointing 4-1 defeat to the eighth-seeded Miami Heat in the opening round, ending an otherwise dominant season.
This led to a change in head coaching, but the addition of Lillard is even more significant. He averaged 32.2 points, 7.3 assists, and 4.8 rebounds in 58 games during the 2022-23 season, and achieved these stats while playing for a struggling Blazers team. Bringing similar production to a powerhouse Bucks team should make them a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference.
Fans are looking forward to meeting Dame Charishma
After making that much-needed trade away from the Portland Trail Blazers to a destination that was not his preferred option, Damian has quickly turned his head off his head away from the news. This follows a report that he has already been seen doing great in the Bucks training facility. However, the fans who saw the tweet are already talking. A fan responded by saying “Yo get this man a different rebounder.”
This fan lamented that Giannis was not at the facility to welcome him, “You can see his energy low as hell. Giannis not even there to welcome him. SO sad.”
Another fan also said, “He’s ready to add some more banners up there.”
The list is endless, more comments are expected in the coming hours. Giannis can’t wait to hit the court running alongside his new teammate, who is already showing some signs of great optimism ahead of the new season. Share your thoughts in the comment section.
