Yep, this is the way for small market teams it was foretold that two teams would join houses in the Game of Zones. I'm perfectly fine with half a championship if we get to see Giannis+Lillard+CJ dominate.

If only Portland had just drafted Giannis instead of CJ. Would've been fun, anyways this isn't happening unless Giannis wants to go to Portland.

for both to team up, one or both would have to leave their current team, and unlike those unlikable players from other teams these two have shown loyalty to their adoptive city. they both are very much alike in this respect. they LOVE the environment of milwaukee and portland

so NO this will never happen

No, one needs to go to the nets and one to LA

Meh, best would have been if they drafted CJ then traded to get the pick to draft Giannis. CJ is still a damn good player to have and that trio would be quite impressive.

Oshley targeted CJ way before the draft so it's a moot point on my part. He was always going to Portland if he fell to them which he did. Sure they could've traded for another pick, but so could've any team theoretically.

Sacramento, Washington, Charlotte & Cleveland all could've drafted Lillard & Giannis too in 2012 & 2013. It doesn't matter, it didn't happen.

I like both of these guys so would be cool if they teamed up, but I like them in large part for their loyalty to their cities so I guess I wouldn't want this to happen lol

I had the same thought. With how low Giannia was drafted, any team could have theoretically made moves to get him, but that is obviously hindsight bias.
