Damian Lillard's NBA career has been highlighted since the beginning. However, the Portland Trail Blazers have failed to build up a championship-contender around him that would help him clinch the last piece of the puzzle he's been missing in the last 10 years, the NBA Championship.
With his ability to be a playmaker, Lillard has been a six-time NBA All-Star participant, as well as the Rookie of Year award winner in 2013, after his rookie season in which he averaged 19 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds in 82 games in his rookie season. As he's been reinventing himself, the Blazers haven't made a team in which he could at least play in the NBA Finals.

Lillard, as well as Antetokounmpo have played for one NBA franchise their entire NBA careers. Despite Lillard is on his way out of the league, and Giannis could seek an experienced to play with. However, this unlikely trade for one or other would be a blockbuster one, and would involve huge assets from both parties.
