However, the one limitation that Giannis has is shooting. While the Milwaukee star can body anyone he wishes, shooting has always been his weak point. Three pointers or free throws, he is still not the best at them. That is the reason everyone was shocked when he missed just 2 free throws in Game 6 of the NBA finals. Now, he is making sure it looks like he can even shoot.

Antetokounmpo said: “You guys, post my dunks, my threes. When I make a three, make it look good. Post it from different angles, you know what I’m saying? Like, post it from this angle, then this angle so it looks like I made four of them. So people can think I can shoot now.”
