Giannis will develop respectable jumper soon, and that's 'scary' - Paul Pierce | The Jump

  • Опубликовано: 10 янв 2019
  • In her daily monologue, Rachel Nichols of The Jump takes a look at Giannis Antetokounmpo after Bucks vs. Rockets, from the moment he hit James Harden in the head with an accidental pass, to what his lack of a consistent jumper means for his 2019 NBA MVP candidacy. Nichols, Amin Elhassan and Paul Pierce then discuss whether he can be the best player in the league if he gets a consistent 3-point shot.

    He gets a jumper, it's over.
    He ain't scared to shoot it, so I bet he's working hard as hell on it. Ben Simmons needs to learn from that. Shoot the rock, it's the only way to know if you can.

    Unpopular Opinion: Giannis would not be as dominant if he had different teammates or on a different team

    F*ck bro, Its Hardens MVP 100% but Giannis deserves one too. Giannis has been doing crazy number these three last seasons.

    GA is the most phenomenal player I have ever witnessed in my 50+ years on this earth. Given the right system and the right teammates and the right coach, a 40pt 15rb 8ast season is not unattainable for him, and it would be as a huge contributor to a dominant winning team and not as a stat padding situation.

    I don't think the jump shot of Giannis is all that bad. I mean he is no Reggie Miller but he isn't Ben Simmons either. I've seen him get hot from the 3 point line in many games so he'll only get more consistent.

    I could see giannis get a 3pt jumper but lets be honest here people, if he gets a scary ass mid range jumper and he starts shooting them like he's a pink diamond Kobe and MJ put together then giannis probably gonna have 3 to 4 rings on his fingers real soon but hey who knows.🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

    Giannis is head and shoulders above everyone else in the MVP race so far. Sure Hardens scoring streak looks nice and likely get him some votes, but imo I don’t see him in the top 5 right now.

    People act like shooting is a talent that your blessed with when it CLEARLY is. Steph curry could stop shooting for a whole year and come back and still be a top shooter because he’s naturally good at it. People think it’s that easy to get a jumpshot. “Just wait till he gets a jumper”. It’s not happening.
    What the fuck do you think they do at the gym? Practice everything BUT shooting?

    I'm not coach or shooting expert but Giannis fundamentals in his shooting form are all off. Looks at his foot placement and his release on that shot. Bucks need to get their star player a shooting coach, because that's the last piece missing for an otherwise excellent player.

    His shooting mechanics are all wrong. The shot isn't fluid. He tilts his head back whenever he shoots which impairs his accuracy. And it takes him damn near forever to shoot the ball. Those aren't things you can just change or unlearn with ease. He'll always be a poor to below average shooter. And it's gunna cost him in the playoffs when he gets double teamed down low and the game gets a little more physical.

    The thought that teams will sag off Giannis and clog the paint during the playoffs is laughable. Sag off him and he gets a full head of steam and will draw lots of contact, still get dunks, and be able to kick it out to open shooters. Giannis is a smart player, unstoppable player. He also only plays 33 minutes per game right now and only 2 Bucks starters are in the 30s. Good luck stopping them when they are playing 38 to 40 in playoffs.

    Not saying that Harden and Giannis don’t want the MVP awards I just don’t think it’s a rivalry or a head to head race Giannis will win naturally because he’s having the better season with the better team
    Stop pushing this NARRATIVE

  • Jax Ace

    All I know is the real mvp of the league is Lebron because no other player can affect a team win and lose ratio like what we have seen from Cleveland to Miami to LA when he leaves and when plays for them. But since Bron is injured, Giannis should clearly be in the lead with what he’s doing and guess what he doesn’t travel or flop on s daily basis, go Giannis.

    • Dick Nuts Dicknuts

    What logic/proof/science/history/data is there to backup that he will somehow learn to shoot all of a sudden? Why wouldn't he have learned last year or the year before or the year before or the year before? It most likely won't happen. Having said that, he is still an amazing player who finds other ways to dominate the game.

      because a shot is something that you gradually improve. His jumper already got better since last year. He just needs to keep working on it. Blake Griffin was able to develop a shot even though it seemed impossible.
