--a larger sample size and that Khris shoots more 3s
They still got him rocking the arm sleeve huh
97 too low
--He should be a 98 tbh
--you misspelled 100
41/9/2 in just 27 minutes. Quoting Magic "I guess we shouldn't have pissed the man off"
Ukrainian players played very dirty against Giannis tonight and the refs supporting them somehow. But in the end Giannis got his revenge.
--Congrats to the refs for pissing him off.Thank you.
The most mid rangers I've seen in a euro game so far. That dirk fade was pure money
I've been told his game won't translate
--The universal language of sex
Giannis just went to war against Ukraine, damn.
--You'd think Giannis is russian with those stats.
Woj: “Russia to engage in recruitment talks with Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo”
Hasn't Ukraine been through enough, Giannis?
--They trash talked him. So, they kinda deserved this one.
Being a Ukrainian and a Giannis fan, this feels great! Helping our african brotha out in his development! Now he knows who Svi is, so maybe uhhh sign him to a 10 day real quick on George Hill's pay?????
Giannis is so good
Arenas feeling 100% right, watching the 27 minutes played in the statsheet
--If coach Bud listen to stupid people like Arenas, Giannis would be overfatigued, average 50ppg and 20rpg, then get injured before the playoffs
--Honestly, Giannis is such a beast, he might be fine playing 40 minutes a night, but why would you risk it?,
Too lazy to get an extra rebound for a double double. #notmygreekfreak
--Just 9 rebounds? Pfff. Giannis overrated confirmed.
--And, remember, the Euro is devaluating, so more like 8.9 rebounds.
--But a 10 minutes quarter, so 10,68 US Rebounds.
--His rebounding numbers are suffering a little because Greece's big men actually rebound rather than just boxing out for him and letting him run the fast break/run point in the half court like the Bucks' scheme does with Brook at the 5.
--I mean, he doesn't really miss on offense, he shoots like 64% on his 2s, so he barely has the chance to get an offensive rebound and you don't really get 20 Rebounds on defense alone (unless Steven Adams boxes out for you to pad your stats).
--he is not lebron or westbrook
--The LeBron special
That said, it's been super fun watching him initiate less and work off-ball.
32/38 on FTs in Eurobasket so far, let us keep 84 FT% Giannis please.
it's what being elite is
--I remember last year people tried to tell me Giannis wouldn’t be as good in FIBA ball as in the NBA.
Giannis was like a man playing among boys.
"Run and dunk/no skill" guy doesn't understand basketball though
--I mean this ''argument'' isn't even in the stratosphere of plausible anymore. If running and dunking -> championship then its good. If giannis doesn't understand basketball how did he win the title and advance in the playoffs every year, while other ''more skilled'' players bottle it every year?
Maybe I'm overanalyzing but probably not: Luka to Bucks confirmed?
--Luka and Giannis would be best duo since Shaq and Kobe.
--I struggle to see how they would ever lose lol (other then injuries). If people thought Steph and KD was bad for league parity, this would be a whole new level.
--Man if Bucks could get Luka (very not likely) I don’t care they trade. Yes even Nwora
--Hahaha. I know. I saw some guy struggling to get through the grass in a leg scooter so I felt bad for him. Then as I looked closer I realized it was coach bud. I was blown away!
--It’s the facial expression. He’s forever stuck in the
I walked past him once when he was at a Badger football game. I didn’t notice it was him until it was too late. I still regret it
What happened to coach Bud's leg? Is he alright?
--Based on the splint it's almost for sure an ankle fracture
Oh no!! What happened?!
Giannis dunked on his ass in practice lol
Is this a joke? Because I though Bud was in Europe watching Eurobasket games.
--He was there at one point. He's back now and Jon Horst is out in Europe watching (or monitoring).
