Giannis needs to work a little less on his 3 pt shooting, and a little more on his free throw shooting.
“3 pt shooting will extend his career.”
You know what else will extend his career? Hitting free throws. They count just the same, and nobody is contesting those shots. He’s 8 for 17 tonight from the line. That’s inexcusable. We’re going to see a lot more hack-a-Giannis if this continues. And all those hard fouls will counteract any benefit to extending his career that taking threes gives.
He might get 25 FTs a game in the playoffs against the Celtics, Heat, or Sixers. They are going to hammer him any time he gets near the basket. He has to be in the 70-75% range to counteract that.
