Somebody reach out to Mr. MVP on social media and tell him he needs to be working on that midrange pull up all day. Ain't got nothing but time now. Put a dummy bag up in several spots on the court with LeBron's face taped over them. You gonna need that extra spark considering how that last match up went brah.... Just saying. Wish you the best dude, you can reach that Goat level if you keep pushing but you got a lot to prove.
Wonder how all the top guys are staying in shape anyway. Nike probably ordered LeBron be put into a hyperbolic chamber
I wonder if he can even get that shot up against tight coverage. He's slower than most guys to get into that shooting motion because he's insanely long. Durant's been fluid all his life. Ingram is another good comp, but Ingram is also way more fluid than Giannis, and all these guys still get bothered by a small dude bodying them up. You're never going to bother the shot up top so you might as well shrink their space and make them think twice about getting into their shooting motion.
A stable midrange turnaround for Giannis would be the most unguardable shot imaginable. I think he's trying to establish that in the low post early, which spells doom for the rest of the league 5 years down the line.
Without a doubt Giannis is getting better. His turnaround jumper, all things considered, looks much better than expected for someone who was not a developed shooter. He needs to maintain confidence and get to this spots every game. He even hit one over LeBron in that last game, he's got a clear length advantage over him. For stronger defenders I think this is the answer for him. For guys like AD and Durant, he can overpower them or drive past them, already seen him do it.
No doubt in my mind he will be the best in the league the next 5 years as long as he stays healthy. But he needs to develop this last tool to take that next leap.
