During this pre-season, Giánnis Antetokoúnmpo showed a certain ease in shooting that he did not have at the time. But for him, this progress would come mainly from better decision-making on the floor.
Already sparkling on the floors of NBA since he started, Giánnis Antetokoúnmpo seems to have added a new string to his bow. Already very powerful, the Greek seems to have worked a lot on his shoot during the offseason and it has paid off. On the last two meetings, the player of Milwaukee Bucks converted four of his last five three-point attempts. At mid-distance, the 26-year-old strong winger appears to have made some progress as well. But for the main interested, this clear improvement would not come from hard work in the shoot.
“All I care about is making the right decisions”
In comments relayed by Basketball USA, Giánnis Antetokoúnmpo affirmed that his progress in the shoot comes mainly from better decision-making on the floor: ” The goal is always to progress, individually and as a team. I’m just trying to make good decisions, that’s all. There are days when you could say I’m very confident, but there will be other days when I don’t put those shots, and they’ll say I’ve lost confidence. All I care about is making the right decisions. You are open, you take the shot. A player arrives at you, take a drive. A two-way strike happens, passes the ball. That’s it, keep making the right choices, over and over again, until it becomes a habit. “.
