‘Lilla Drama’ ended with a ‘sad ending’.
Local media, including ‘ESPN’, reported on the 28th (Korean time) that “the Portland Trail Blazers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Phoenix Suns conducted a triangular trade.”
It was none other than Milwaukee that had Damian Lillard, of whom various rumors abounded, and Portland received Jrue Holiday, DeAndre Ayton, Toumani Kamara, a 2029 first round pick, and two pressure rights. Phoenix signed Grace Allen, Yusuf Nurkic, Nasir Little and Keon Johnson.
The team Lillard wanted first was the Miami Heat, who had mentioned Tyler Herro as a trade candidate. Negotiations were ultimately sluggish, and Milwaukee eventually succeeded in making a surprise signing.
Milwaukee has a solid power that can aim for the presidency, centering on superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. Lillard also expressed satisfaction through his agent, saying, “The perfect opportunity has come.”먹튀검증
In this way, the ‘Lillard era’ in Portland came to an end. Lillard, who debuted in Portland with the 6th pick in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft, was a representative one-club man who stayed with the team for 11 seasons.
In his career, he recorded 19,376 points, 3,253 rebounds, and 5,151 assists, and made a total of 2,387 3-point shots. Scores and 3-pointers are the highest in Portland club history. In addition, he was with Portland during his heyday, including being selected to the All-NBA First Team seven times and being named one of the 75 greatest players selected by the NBA for its 75th anniversary.
In addition, he showed a strong heart to the extent that ‘Clutch Time = Lillard’ and created numerous nicknames among fans such as ‘Dame Time’ and ‘General Lillard.’ In particular, the scene where he points to his wrist and signals that it is ‘Dame Time’ after successfully hitting the shot that ends the game is his representative signature ceremony.
However, for one thing, he was unable to achieve every player’s dream of winning, and Lillard ultimately chose a ‘sad ending’. Born in 1990, he is now looking at a considerable age. Will Lillard’s dream of giving up ‘romance’ to win the championship come true?
