Because of his superior range, Damian Lillard was acquired by the Milwaukee Bucks. In fact, you might argue that Dame is the greatest non-Stephen Curry three-point shooter in the NBA right now.
To the amazement of his Bucks teammates, Lillard displayed his impressive range at Tuesday’s shootaround in preparation for their preseason matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Lillard fired a shot from the center of the floor, where the Thunder logo was located. The seven-time All-Star banked his shot from about 50 feet away, making it appear simple.
Undoubtedly, logo shots are fundamental to Dame. He has done it often in the past, including during real games, and there will undoubtedly be many more instances of it now that he is a member of the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Approves
The greatest part of this footage, apart from the fact that Dame debuted his famous Logo Lillard avatar, is how Giannis Antetokounmpo responded to the same. The Bucks talisman could be seen watching his new superstar teammate have a (literal) jaw-dropping moment with his mouth gaping agape.
Lillard has previously said how impressed he is with Giannis and what the former back-to-back MVP is capable of doing on the floor. It should go without saying that Antetokounmpo feels the same way.
