Just when everybody thought the Miami Heat would land Damian Lillard, the Milwaukee Bucks came out of the blue with a better offer.
Now, they have the best duo in the Eastern Conference, with Giannis Antetokounmpo by his side.
That’s why the team didn’t waste the chance to hype up their new duo, posting several pictures of them together with the caption “Freak Time.”

That’s a nice nickname, and it obviously refers to the Greek Freak and Dame Time, so don’t be shocked to see plenty of jerseys and Bucks-themed apparel coining it as well.
Giannis had threatened to leave the Bucks — or at least not to sign a contract extension with them — unless he was 100% certain they were going to go the extra mile to try and win another NBA championship.
Well, we guess this move silenced every single doubt he could’ve had about that, as it was a bold and unexpected trade.
Giannis did admit that it was bittersweet to see Jrue Holiday go, and the front office reportedly didn’t consult him about that deal because they didn’t want him to feel guilty about it.
But in reality, Lillard is a much better fit next to Giannis, and while they’re definitely going to miss Holiday’s elite defense, they do have the personnel to make up for it and “hide” Lillard on that end of the floor.
They still have to prove themselves on the court, but it’s hard to think of a team that could take them down in a seven-game series.NEXT: Giannis Antetokounmpo Doubles Down On His Workout Comments
