During a promotional event for his new shoe, Milwaukee Bucks star Damian Lillard raised eyebrows by excluding teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo from his NBA starting five.

Lillard, known for his sharpshooting and basketball IQ, revealed his preferred lineup, which notably did not feature the two-time NBA MVP.

Instead, Lillard’s starting five included himself alongside basketball luminaries Steph Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Bam Adebayo.

While Lillard’s selections reflect his personal preferences and playing style, the omission of Antetokounmpo underscores the depth of talent across the league.
