Giannis Antetokounmpo is a 3x NBA MVP for a reason -- the dude is pretty good at basketball. But it doesn't mean he's perfect.
In fact, Giannis has some pretty significant holes in his game when it comes to shooting, and that includes at the charity stripe as well.
After Game 5, which saw Giannis and his team come away with the win, Chris Paul took a pretty hefty shot at the guy in the press conference, raising more than a few eyebrows in the community...
“Everybody is anticipating him to miss, even him,” Paul said , per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
Here, Paul was answering a question by one reporter who asked what the Suns need to improve to beat Milwaukee. CP3 suggested that they need to control the rebounds after free throws, especially from the misses of Antetokounmpo.
To his credit, Phoenix has been getting heavily outrebounded. And, obviously, Giannis missing at the line is a great opportunity to gobble up some boards and even the playing field. On Friday, Giannis was just 4-11 from the line.
Still, it is the Bucks who find themselves leading, and unless Phoenix can muster up an appropriate response in Game 6, Giannis' free throw percentage isn't going to matter anyway.
