Damian Lillard just got a new home after the blockbuster three team trade was announced by the Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers and the Phoenix Suns. The former blazers guard is now a part of Bucks alongside the player he once thought could help him win the NBA championship.
The arrival of Dame is accepted very well around the whole NBA community, fans and analysts alike. The people are excited to see Lillard alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo and are expecting great things from the duo. Giannis himself texted Lillard after his trade was announced and the contents of the message sure are enthusiastic but NSFW!
Giannis sends explicit message to Damian Lillard
Giannis Antetokounmpo warmly welcomed Damian Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks. The departure of Jrue Holiday got the Greek Freak feeling a bit sad but on the other hand he now has eyes on the championship with the arrival of a world class talent like Dame.
Giannis has openly expressed his intention of leaving the Bucks if he felt that the team was not serious about winning the championship. The team seems to have responded very well to this fiery desire of Giannis by bringing in Lillard. Giannis texted Dame soon after the announcement of the trade, where the message read, “Lets get this f*****g championship.”
Bucks become championship contenders after Lillard trade
The Milwaukee Bucks have now become one of the favourites to win the NBA championship after the epic trade. The Bucks have not been able to recreate their 2021 NBA season dominance for the past two years. They have faced rough playoffs exit in the past two seasons and injuries had plagued the team.
However, the team looks much promising now after the inclusion of Damian Lillard. The rotational depth is still lacking in the squad but that can be fixed with more deals and there is some time left before the season begins and players like Cameron Payne are still on the market. The starting 5 of the Bucks look very strong and a good chemistry between Giannis and Dame would be very problematic for opposing teams to deal with.
What do you think of Giannis’s message to Damian Lillard? Do you think the Bucks will be able to win the championship this upcoming season? We are eager to know your thoughts, so drop down in the comments and share with us.
