The day that Milwaukee Bucks fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. On Friday, new superstar recruit Damian Lillard made his much-awaited debut in the team’s first game of the season. It was only fitting that the Bucks played their first game on their home court, which gave the supporters a chance to give Dame a warm Milwaukee welcome.
Damian Lillard Gets Warm Welcome From Milwaukee Bucks Fans
Lillard was introduced in the Bucks starting lineup for the first time and the capacity crowd made sure to show their appreciation:

I personally wasn’t in attendance to watch the game (hat tip to Lily Zhao of FOX6 News), but it’s hard not to get goosebumps after watching this historic moment unfold right before your eyes, albeit through the screen of your mobile device. I can only imagine what it must have been like for the Bucks fans in attendance.
It didn’t take long for Dame to get things going. He scored his first bucket for his new team at the eight-minute mark of the first quarter to mark yet another historic moment in this new chapter of his career.
Lillard kept his foot on the gas, finishing the first half with 21 points on 5-of-10 shooting and a perfect 9-of-9 from the line, to go along with two triples, five rebounds, three assists, and zero turnovers in 17 minutes of action.
Expect Milwaukee fans to have this same type of energy throughout the season. They’re also hoping to cheer their team on all the way to a championship in 2023-24.
