It’s a surreal sight to envision Damian Lillard without a Portland Trail Blazers uniform, yet he’s embarking on a new chapter with the Milwaukee Bucks after a September trade. This dynamic pairing with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo promises fireworks.

Before Dame D.O.L.L.A’s Milwaukee journey, let’s reflect on his illustrious 11-year NBA career. The 6th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Lillard spent his entire career in Portland, immediately making an impact with the Rookie of the Year award in 2013, averaging 19 points and 6.5 assists. His iconic buzzer-beater against the Houston Rockets in the 2014 playoffs broke a 14-year playoff series drought.

Lillard evolved into a franchise cornerstone, earning 7 All-Star selections. Renowned for his clutch performances, he unleashed “Dame Time” with his remarkable shooting from anywhere on the court. In 2019, he etched his name in NBA history with a cold-blooded buzzer-beater to eliminate the OKC Thunder.
