He looks like a lefty having his first attempt at right handed.

Still looks more natural than when Gruber holds a bat.

I hope Giannis makes a major improvement over the summer. He has to improve on free throws and shooting. I get he was worn down/possibly injured during the Toronto series, but he didn’t play like an MVP. Kawhi was clearly the best player on the court. I really hope he improves in shooting and free throws. If he does, the loss of Malcom will not hurt as much.
I admit to being a terrible judge of talent and having minimal knowledge of the game of basketball.

Outside of shooting, he needs to become better at making decisions to move the ball sooner, and making his passes count.

Too many times in that Toronto series, he dribbled into three guys then made a pass to the wrong teammate, or made a poor pass to the correct teammate.

I don't think he'll ever be LeBron or Doncic with his accuracy and vision, but if he steps up to that next level of passer it will be so much easier to make teams pay for double and triple teaming him.

Yankees tampering for the Knicks lol
Bucks tricked me into being a diehard in 2001, LeBron is the 2nd best player ever, and pizza is awesome.

You can tell he's never touched a bat before in his life. Odd as this is something we learn at a very early age here.

Nah. He looks like a guy who's gotten bad golf instructions trying to hit a baseball.

That is quite the read on Alex and Giannis....

Also, wouldn't it be fitting to end up with the Pacers pick falling to us in 2021 and it being the 15th overall...

Gosz has been there for a while now. I give him the pass cuz it's his dad's school and he was the coolest coach I ever played for.

Still K-House tho.

My logical side says this is ridiculous, and that more likely than not there will be a better player available if we are viewing things objectively. But then my emotional side chimes in:

Image

I think when it comes down to it i would be okay with having all four of them on the team. Once in a while, put all of them on the court at the same time with Brook. If this is the kind of thing it takes to keep Giannis through retirement, why not?

At the same time, Giannis probably understands better than anyone that a man needs to forge his own path. I doubt he honestly wants all of his brothers playing with him, even if it means that he has to play against them once in a while. If they truly want to go out and be their own player, they won't all flock to papa Giannis.
