Milwaukee Bucks heiress Mallory Edens was on hand Thursday night when Damian Lillard made his highly-anticipated regular season debut against the Philadelphia 76ers.
It goes without saying that arguably the biggest storyline of the NBA offseason this year was what would ultimately happen with Lillard. Early on, it became apparent that the Portland Trail Blazers would trade him.
It was just a matter of where precisely they would send him.
For a while, it seemed like the Miami Heat had the upper hand – mainly because that is where Lillard himself wanted to go. In the end, Milwaukee swooped in and got the future Hall of Famer.
On Thursday night, Lillard made his big debut for the Bucks. Edens was on hand to cheer him, and her outfit to the game went viral.
Edens has made it no secret how excited she is for Lillard to be a part of her team.
While Lillard has obviously been dealing with a lot of off-the-court drama between his wife exposing him for being fake and the ugly turn their ongoing divorce has taken, on the court that didn’t seem to hamper him at all.
Not only did Milwaukee walk away with a 118-117 win this week, but Lillard finished with 39 points for the night.

It will be interesting to see if Edens ultimately opts to attend more games this year with Lillard having joined the Bucks. She obviously is something of a magnet for headlines in her own right, between her photos with her boyfriend and wild bathing suit pictures.
It would certainly make sense if she did come to more Bucks games in 2023. The team is a must-watch attraction on a nightly basis now.
What sort of campaign will Lillard and Co. be able to string together this season? Is an NBA title in their immediate future? Time will tell.
