Stephen A. Smith Proposes Trading Away Damian Lillard If The Milwaukee Bucks Fall Short In The Playoffs


The Milwaukee Bucks were touted as one of the best teams in the NBA following the acquisition of former Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard. While they remain a top-three team in the Eastern Conference, their regression this season is undeniable, finishing with a 49-33 record compared to last year’s 58-24 mark.

Many anticipate a deeper playoff run for the Bucks compared to their regular season performance. However, popular analyst Stephen A. Smith has a surprising suggestion if they falter, which is to move the 33-year-old Lillard in the offseason.

While we all know Lillard remains an All-Star and serves as an excellent complement to Giannis Antetokounmpo, Smith’s concern isn’t about his performance. Instead, it’s about Lillard’s apparent unhappiness being in Milwaukee.


“If Milwaukee loses, I think you need to consider moving Dame up outta there. I’m not talking about his game. He’s not happy there.”
