Giannis Antetokounmpo is confident he can win the NBA championship even without shooting the three. Yet he would like to add the element to his game.
This is what the Greek Freak told, per CBS Sports:
“There’s a lot of people out there that said, ‘Oh, if Giannis don’t add the 3 he’s not gonna be one of the best players in the league.’ I just won the MVP? No 3, right?
“I can still win the championship not shooting the 3, but I want to shoot the 3. I shot the 3 a little bit better this year, as the season went along I was getting better. Shooting the 3 is gonna make it a lot easier for my game and a lot easier for my teammates, so I gotta add that element to my game.”
Giannis is a 27.7 [percent career three-point shooter. In his MVP season the Greek Freak made 25.6 percent of his three-pointers.
