So, you're wondering who Damian Lillard's best teammates are? No worries... we have you covered!

Damian Lillard, often referred to as "Dame Dolla," is one of the most prominent and skilled point guards in the NBA. Throughout his career with the Portland Trail Blazers, which began when he was drafted in 2012, Lillard has had the privilege of playing alongside several talented teammates who have made significant contributions to his development.

These teammates helped form a dynamic supporting cast that complemented Lillard's remarkable skills on the court, which enabled the Trail Blazers to consistently make the playoffs in a highly competitive Western Conference.

However, the Blazers were never able to surround Lillard with another legit superstar. On September 27, 2023, Lillard was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team blockbuster that also included the Phoenix Suns. This sent Jrue Holiday, Deandre Ayton and Toumani Camara to Portland as well as Milwaukee's 2029 unprotected first-round draft pick and unprotected Milwaukee swap rights in 2028 and 2030. The Suns received Jusuf Nurkic, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little and Keon Johnson in the trade.

It goes without saying that Giannis Antetokounmpo will immediately shoot to the top of this ranking once they step on the floor together, but since that won't happen until October 26, 2023, at home against the Philadelphia 76ers, he still can't be listed for another few weeks.

With that said, here are the Damian Lillard's six best teammates, ranked.

1. LaMarcus Aldridge

2. CJ McCollum

3. Carmelo Anthony

4. Nicolas Batum

5. Jusuf Nurkić

6. Anfernee Simons
