Apparently Suki and Sullivan are following Giannis around to train with him.
Must be nice having to work in Crete this time of the year.

Assume they're working with Thanasis also. Thanasis + Suki = yiiiiiiiiikes.

Suki was with them the previous days. I think she left now. Ben is still with them and he made the topic of a training day report as Giannis was ill and having nothing better to do he was putting up shots. He made almost all of them and some Greek reporters started asking "who is this guy?". :lol:

You'll need a Greek IP address I think. VPN may be your friend.

Giannis finished the game with 9/10 FT and a nice tomahawk dunk.
Most notable move was him dribbling into a mid range jumper. He made the attempt cleanly, but I noticed him jumping immediately, without any hesitation whatsoever. Very different from what we are used to. Maybe, something he worked on for playoff defences?

Reminds me of the Orlando Magic jerseys back in the days when Penny and Shaq were playing together.

All of them look good this year, but my personal favorite is the retro dark blue jersey:

They will wear it only for a few friendly games in Athens next week

His release on his free throw looks cleaner.
