Giannis is not a finished product. He’s learning how. He had a short off-season when that kind of work gets done. The article shouldn’t say “isn’t”, it should say “isn’t yet”. The guy is 26 years old, ffs. When Durant was 26, he was losing a 3-1 lead to the Warriors the season before he joined them. No one was saying Durant was the best player in the NBA then.

I love how recency bias feeds the sports world… all of a sudden the shine is off the star of Giannis Antetokounmpo as if at age 26, growing up playing soccer in some ghetto in Athens was going to make him a finished product by 26. It’s fucking stupid…

He is not a finished product but he is not a natural shooter, never will be.  I don't care if the guy works on his shot 24/7 for 365 days a year, he will never be a true shooter.  Nothing against Giannis, I love everything about the guy but the reality is you will never be able to give him the ball at the end of the game and rely on him like you can rely on players like Leonard, Durant , Bryant, Wade, etc.   We need to have someone on the roster that can do that.   It's not Middleton or Holiday either.
