    He has done that several times this year. He has been improving as the year has gone on. He came out in the middle of halftime entertainment last night and went to that spot with some kids and had them feed him the ball in that spot. He drained about 7 in a row.

    Giannis’ 3 pt shooting % by month throughout the season
    October: 6.3%

    November: 14.3%

    December: 22.2%

    January: 30.6%

    February: 45.5%

    I don’t get to watch a ton of MIL games, if ever. I’ve always been under the impression that he was maybe slightly better than Ben Simmons at shooting 3’s, but that is clearly inaccurate. He has tried 153 3’s this season. My mind is being blown.

    Unlike Ben, Giannis is trying to get better at them and will shoot them in a game. I can’t recall a game where he didn’t try at least three over the last several months. I am a season ticket holder and have been to most of the home games, and have seen every other game on television.

    I love this. I think if he adds range he gets into the top-20 all time discussion. Pardon my fanboy- ism, but he becomes unstoppable IMO. Not meaning to get into the ‘hot take’ stuff but as a fan, man, this gets me going.. sorry, just a random thought..

  • tmarohl

    Those Pacer uniforms today are God Awful!

  • callmetouch

    So Lowry>Simmons in tiers…..of course i stack Simmons.

    Its a slow forum day. We can talk about whatever we want. Wheres MT when the floor is open. I think most people would agree with you. How can Giannis be stopped if he is a legitimate threat from 3. The 3’s I saw him make were pretty open, the defender was in front of him, but giving him a good amount of space, daring him to shoot. If defenders are forced to stick to him outside the 3 line, he is going to go right around them. It will be fun to watch. Its gotta be nice to be in such a small market and be able to see Giannis play every home game.

    Oops, you’re the season ticket holder, my bad. I am jelly though.

    So how do you feel about Giannis today? Last time they had a back to back, they had LAL the first night, then a tougher match-up in UTA. He crushed in UTA.

    I don’t like the Bucks at all today. I am chalking it up as a schedule loss. Late game last night that started at 8 and didn’t get over until 10:30 or so. Lose another hour to daylight savings time. I’m sure they probably didn’t get to San Antonio to a hotel until 5 am or so. I think they will be tired and sluggish and do not have a very good feeling about the game from a Bucks perspective.

    @Njsum1 said...

    Yep, but I’m doing a heat check in a least one lineup. Dude is ballin right now

    I definitely will have spot exposure to him. I just don’t think he’s a crazy strong play today, but he’ll be very low owned.

    Man, its tough to focus on this 6pm slate while keeping up with the early one.

    I’ve bet Giannis for MVP each of the last two preseasons… this looks like it will be close for this one, but man, that guy is the unequivocal future best player in the league if he isn’t already pushing for it now.

    You have to eat the Gibson chalk, no?

    I guess tonight I finally cash in my $555 DK Ticket. Wish it was a better slate. Hopefully we somehow get Wolves news before lock, but not counting on it.

    I won’t go crazy here but I will mention I see the history of unguardable shots as something like: Mikan’s hook, Kareem’s skyhook, Mj’s fadeaway, Dirk’s fadeaway. While those last two were getting going, the Eurostep became legitimate. Giannis is the prototype- I see him mastering the three point shot as he is already the best Eurostep ever. The master stroke is when his athleticism fails him, Giannis leans on his addition to the list: ABC shooting threes while fading away. Defenders cannot close hard, cannot challenge shot, cannot stop the bull rush, and he becomes the SuperFreak. Amen to the basketball gods
