Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, Bucks

Bucks duo of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard to debut vs. Lakers

After a summer filled with speculation about Damian Lillard’s immediate future in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks were able to swoop in out of nowhere toward the end of the offseason in order to pull off a three-way trade with the Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers to acquire the superstar guard.

The blockbuster trade sent shockwaves throughout the NBA. The dynamic duo of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Lillard are as imposing as any duo in the league today. Although the Boston Celtics made a trade for Jrue Holiday shortly after this deal, the Bucks are still expected to be a force to be reckoned with, where their debut set to take place this weekend against the Los Angeles Lakers at Crypto.com Arena via ESPN.
