Giannis takes over 30 seconds for a free throw routine and shot
My favorite part is all the preparation and he still bricks it lol
We need a free throw contest in all star weekend: giannis, simmons vs the legends - chuck hayes + shaq
现役队：字母哥+西蒙斯 vs 传奇队：海耶斯+大鲨鱼
Curry: Grabs ball, steps towards line, dribbles once, shoots.
KD: Dribbles once, spins ball in hands, shimmies with shoulder, shoots.
Ray Allen: Spins ball in hands, dribbles quickly three times, spins ball in hands, shoots.
Giannis: All of the above combined.
They all shoot 85-90% on FT. In theory Giannis should be making 255-270% of his free throws.
So his routine is:
2 deep breaths
Practice form without the ball twice while staring at his hands
Dribble 6 times
Wait 3 seconds
Bring the ball on top of his head and catapult that shit at the rim
What even is the point of this routine? Is there some shooting coach who told him this was a good idea?
Prob why KD and Harden can play soo many minutes
Lmao harden whispers to another net “ay can you foul giannis i need a breather”.
Yeah, the longer the routine is, the harder it is to perfectly replicate it, making you more uncomfortable when you're about to shoot. Imagine doin this in practice, you'd be spending fuckin hours trying to do just 100 free throws
It's always best to stick to a quick & simple routine that you can replicate easily. Deep breath, 2 quick dribbles, spin the ball and shoot.
Have u seen Simmons? It can get a lot worse
Harden using his acting skills to chew some scenery on the line there.
“Free throws are so boring. How does anyone watch this?” - James Harden
NBA needs to make a “Giannis rule” next season. They’re giving him way too much time.
T Mac scored 13 points with this much time lol
The ref needs to throw him the ball as soon as he gets up to the line.
Yeah this is clearly on the ref lol even Giannis has a reaction like "I'm gonna keep practicing my form if you aren't passing me the ball"
The ref did that in the Miami series before he finished his routine and he got a little pissed and passed the ball back to the ref
He did it in LA
