Re: Giannis Thread - Baby Freak on the Way

From last February-

Never imagined ever caring enough to say this about an NBA player, but Giannis is going to make a remarkable father one day. I’d be legit bummed if he ever breaks up with his girlfriend. That’s where I’m at with Giannis as a dude. He seems like an absolute treasure of a human being.



That day is coming!

Now Khris and Giannis can bond as fathers.

Giannis staying in Milwaukee is clearly a lock :lol:

I really like the orange shoes but I'd like to know if any of the other colors will actually be available at some point



Can you not just go online a customize them? Not sure what new shoes are out, but I just made mine online in the colors I wanted.

Congrats to Giannis and Mariah on the baby. Now, go get married. :)

I've played around with the customized option. I haven't come up with anything I like. But I haven't spent a lot of time on it.

Giannis commented “who’s the father?” on his girlfriends Instagram post. That made me laugh.

Browsing through I only quickly spotted Ch29's "go get married" comment and I honestly thought MD was referring to his ex-wife with his response. :lol:

While I haven't watched preseason really much at all, from the clips of seen of Giannis shooting 3s I can actually see a difference n his stroke. Doesn't have the hitch/catapult at the top and its now all one motion. I'd say this a good sign overall, hopefully the results come from it.

I think his shot looks even worse, somehow.

haha, could be. Like I said I haven't seen much. just a few clips on twitter. That was really my only comment so far in regards to all one motion and his shoulders not going back first to create a hitch/catapult. Yea maybe the remaining aspects are worse though.

ETA: could just be a portion of me just seeing what i want to see and being optimistic too

We've talked about it ad nauseum but Giannis' shot is always going to be a thing. Hands are too big. Arms are too long. Motions are too hard to repeat. Don't let that take a single ounce of joy away from fully appreciating the player he is at this very moment. We've already seen he can be the best in the world without a reliable jump shot. Feels a little greedy to even slightly expect more.

Big hands can be a problem. But everything else is just a product of terrible mechanics. Rhythm might be the most important aspect of shooting, and he just doesn't have it.

Kawhi also has big hands. He can shoot. Giannis will figure it out as well. Eventually.
