4. Future MVP?
This was definitely a Dirk-type shot, absolutely incredible. He shot it right over the outstretched hand of the New York Knicks forward, Lance Thomas.
Malcolm Brogdon threw it in to Giannis Antetokounmpo who was posting up Thomas at the edge of the 3-point line. Giannis managed to bully Thomas all the way into the paint and was having his way. Then, he did something a little bit unexpected.
No one watching the game knew what Giannis was going to do. He could’ve passed it out to Brogdon’s waiting hands at the 3-point line or he could’ve passed it to the cutting Greg Monroe. Instead, Giannis took a fadeaway jumper in Dirk fashion and nailed it. He just stepped back and nailed the shot. Smooth as butter.
Giannis has been uber impressive this season and his success this season only begs one question, how much better can he get. Not only can get better, but he hasn’t reached his full potential.
The future is bright for Giannis.
