Giannis Antetokounmpo is a beast in making. Reigning MVP was also on the course of winning his 2nd consecutive MVP when the NBA suspension happened. His skills whether offensively or defensively are completely unparalleled to any of the players in the NBA.
The Greek Freek has played 30.9 minutes per game this season and has averaged 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists and whooping 11.5 defensive rebounds per game. His field goal percentage stands at 54.7 and free throw at 63.3. All these stats just back the motion of Giannis being the next big face of the NBA.
But amid all these stats, there is one thing which completely lacks in Giannis’ arsenal i.e ability to shoot from 3 point parameter. His 3 point percentage which has drastically changed from the previous year now stands at 30.6 in this season with his career 3 point percentage still stuck at 28.5. This inability to throw 3 pointers has made Giannis very much predictable during his whole career.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is now learning from best
But hey, hey it now looks like Giannis is starting to learn from the very best and has started working on the missing dimension of his game. Antetokounmpo in his recent Instagram post posted about how he always is trying to learn from the best, in this case, his friend Kyle Korver.
39-year-old veteran, Kyle possesses an astonishing career 42.9 percentage from 3 pointer line. With his season-high of 53.6 coming with Utah Jazz in 2009-10 season. So, Giannis in all sense is right to learn from his senior Korver.
Milwaukee Bucks was having the season of their lifetime before the NBA halt. The team was on course to becoming the third team to win 70 games in a season. This success of Bucks was all centered around their star player Giannis who led the team in both offense and defense. They would definitely like to regain that momentum if this season resume again.
For now, with coronavirus pandemic all around the world, it’s just looking bleak for the season to resume in the future. As the night is dark and full of terrors for now.
