After months of swirling rumors and intense speculation, the NBA community was finally hit with a major revelation: Damian Lillard is on the move to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Contrary to the long-standing belief that he was Miami-bound, Lillard found himself at the center of a three-team blockbuster trade that sent shockwaves throughout the league.

The news, initially broken by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, left many in the basketball world in sheer astonishment.

Even former NBA guard Muggsy Bogues couldn't help but wonder if this was the biggest "WOJ BOMB" in history.

"Losing Jrue is Big. That's all imma say," Patrick Beverley was straightforward on X, formerly known as Twitter.

NBA analyst Kevin O'Connor, offering his perspective on the full trade package, commented on the surprise factor: "It's shocking the Bucks were able to pull this off. But the Blazers must feel great about what they could flip Jrue Holiday for during the season."

"The Dame/Giannis two-man game will be unstoppable," he added.

Later on, many big names, including Jimmy Butler, Josh Hart, CJ McCollum, Darius Garland, Alex Caruso, Isaiah Thomas, and Lillard himself, joined in the conversation on the blockbuster trade.
