    Can you imagine if Giannis trained with Hakeem every summer?

    He is trying to be funny, both are from Africa originally. Like the Dream and Mutombo.

    don't think he was born with dream-like footwork. but he needs a shooting coach more than anything. the dreamshake doesn't work without a reliable midrange.

    Giannis is going to be just fine and they’ll come out of the east for years to come. This is all part of the experience process. Thinking this guy has peaked is just nonsense. It’s scary how good this guy can be

    Giannis averaged 23 ppg on 52% TS in the ECF...dude shot 58% from the line

    this series was not a good look for him at all...his limitations were on full display

    he’s at least capable of making a wide open, uncontested three here and there, but his jumper has a long way to go

    Giannis was born and raised in Athens. His parents are from Africa but I’m not sure he’s ever even been there himself.

    Typical Clutchfans hate. The kid seems like a hard worker and has improved every year. I'm thinking he will develop a respectable jump shot although I think it will take a few more years before we see it being reliable.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. Dude just turned 24 and already made it into the legit mvp Conversation with a case to win it.

    The way Giannis folded during crunch time makes you wonder if he truly is Greek or not.

    He will be fine.
    However he stood up and left the podium interview.
    Those fans who believe that just because they can pay him the biggest contract in history theres no way he will turn them down better wake up.
    He wants to win and if next year the Bucks fail he will leave.

    ?
    He cant shoot. Thats enough proof that he has greek bball education.

    Greeks have had some amazing marksmen/women.

    Apollo
    Artemis
    Actaeon
    Eros
    Orin

    Just to name a few.

    Too bad basketball wasn't invented back then. We could have won some medals.
    Now we are stuck with the worst shooting of Europe.
    It's a trademark of this school of bball.

    Whereas the Serbs and the Lithuanians are always great shooters. But they don't play good D.

    Giannis is an elite player.

    He just shouldn’t be the MVP and he isn’t the best player in basketball.

    James Harden is a superior player and a handful of others are too.

    Still pretty elite company.

    I like when MVPs avoid the ball like the plague when their team has a chance to win.
