Hid FT looks a little better.

Also hoping he gets more practise facing up to the wall on offense. Iran did it one time and he found someone underneath the ring.

He still has that little hitch in his FT where he leans back with his upper body as he shoots. I’d love to see him go up straight.

Is there anyway to watch the games going on this weekend in Greece? I know they play Italy today, not sure what time though.

Even though Giannis missed that pullup 3, his motion was very solid (continuous). Of course, we are talking about just one shot sample :)

At this point, his form in the free throw line is the main concern in my opinion.

I liked seeing the form on that three pointer attempt as well.

Not bringing the ball down as much during his free throw motion. The floater was also nice to see.

I ll join the chorus:

That pull-up looked very clean and natural, mechanics-wise. Didnt go in...

Oh **** the Greeks will probably lose Giannis in International FA for cutting his brother. Nigeria could scoop up a big win here.

That was a nice putback dunk by Thanasis.

Giannis still not good from the free throw line. Release on the jumper is quicker/smoother but results aren’t showing yet. He had one nice pull up but his three was a brick.
