After months of rumors and speculation, Damian Lillard has now been moved to the Milwaukee Bucks.
This was one of the biggest trades in recent NBA history, and it was also a bit unexpected.
Many people thought that the Portland Trail Blazers and Miami Heat would work out a deal, as Lillard had wished.
On Wednesday, Joy Taylor gave her opinion on “Speak,” sharing why she thinks the Bucks might not be as good a fit as the Heat for Lillard.
“Dame didn’t think this was the best situation, how dare I argue with the man that was moved,” Taylor said.

Taylor repeatedly said that Lillard didn’t believe that the Bucks were a good fit for him and that he must have his reasons.
But she also added that the issue of coaching could make a huge difference in the months ahead.
Erik Spoelstra is one of the greatest NBA coaches in history.
Now that Lillard is in Milwaukee, he won’t get a chance to play under him.
Instead, Lillard will be guided by Adrian Griffin, who is getting his first shot at being an NBA head coach.
There could be some growing pains with Griffin as he adjusts to the league – will Lillard be happy with that?
The good news is that Lillard said he wanted to play for a championship contender and the Bucks won their latest Finals just a few seasons ago – they could give him his first ring soon.
But he really had his heart set on the Heat.
Lillard will surely play well and remain committed to his new team but people will always wonder what could have been had he moved down to Miami instead.
