How Does ‘Dame to the Bucks’ Affect Lebron’s Legacy?

King James’ chance to capture yet another championship ring may be at risk thanks to Milwaukee’s trade.

How does the three-way trade between the Portland Trailblazers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Phoenix Suns affect the glorious, luscious, glamourous pookie bear sugar baby honeybun boo LeGoat James’ legacy?

As the Bucks attain Damian Lillard, aka Dame Time, his deep three-point shooting and elite scoring ability are sure to pair well with the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, whose bullet-train-like offensive abilities make him feared in the paint and on the fastbreak.

The Bucks are a contender for the championship this year, and it has the potential to stop the Lakers and our glorious king from getting his fifth championship and finally proving to everyone that he indeed is THE GOAT despite already having four MVPs, four Finals MVPs, a scoring record, and two Olympic Gold Medals. Plus he was named All-Star 19 times, selected to the All-NBA team 19 times, and All-Defensive team six times.

But the Bucks are in the eastern conference, and the duo of the Greek Freak and Dame Time won’t affect Lebron unless he manages to win the Western Conference Finals.
The Phoenix Suns’ potential starters consist of Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, Eric Gordon, Kevin Durant, and Jusuf Nurkic, also championship contenders.

Portland, on the other hand, received, three first-round draft picks for 2028-2030: Jrue Holiday, Deandre Ayton, and Toumani Camara. The entire point of the trade is to clear rotational minutes for Scoot Henderson, Shaedon Sharpe, and Anfernee Simons.

Currently, Portland’s possibility of going to the finals is incredibly low, as even with Lillard they didn’t make the playoffs last year.

In the future their lineup looks good; combined with those three first-round picks, they have a good chance at winning a chip one day.

Overall, the team that has the highest chance of winning it all is the Boston Celtics, with +380 odds, followed by the Bucks (insert odds), then the Suns (odds) and the Nuggets (odds).

Lebron and the Lakers are going to have a hard time fighting their way through the playoffs, as most contending teams are in the West. They will have to play against the Sun’s superteam and the defending champions Nuggets, who are also highly favored to win.

Fox Sports Analyst Ric Bucher stated, “The difference? Those teams are exiting their prime. The Nuggets are entering it. Oh, and they have a 7-foot riddle, Nikola Jokić, for which no one in the league appears to have the answer.”

When asked how Lebron would do against the reigning champs, South freshman Chan Nyguyen said, “My glorious almighty king [Lebron] will always prevail over any circumstance! Even if it’s against a fat, lazy [player] who parties all day.”

Despite all odds, if “Leboo boo James” manages to make it to the NBA Finals as he did with the Cavalier’s horrible supporting cast in 2007, he’ll solidify himself as the one above all, the GOAT Who Was Promised.

The GOAT would be none other than my precious sugarbear, Lebron James.

He would finally prove to all the haters that he is better than Michael Jordan, who was good, but played in a plumber league and had better help from fellow all-stars Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman.

Lebron overall is a better passer and shooter, and his muscular build and his all-around playmaking skills make him the better player. Also, Jordan shaved his head when he was only 26; at 38, Lebron has short hair, but at least he has some, and everyone knows some is always better than none.

This means that Lebron can retire, something that people have been wanting him to do for years, and he can finally pursue a new career in poorly rapping songs.
