VIDEO: Giannis Antetokounmpo goes full-court three-dribbles
Bucks forward is long. We mean really, super, crazy long.
Tracking exactly how ridiculously long Giannis Antetokounmpo is has been an ongoing treat in the NBA. This latest one is a doozy. Bucksketball tracked the Greak Freak on a fast break Wedneday and noticed something crazy.
He went the length of the floor in three dribbles. Nope, not kidding.
But I mean, that was a travel, right? From Bucksketball:
If he held off on gathering the ball until just after he picked up his left foot for the final time, then it’s legal. If not, he traveled.
It happens so fast that even after watching it 50 times, I can’t tell. How fast? Giannis catches the ball with 7:17 on the clock and releases the shot from his hand at 7:14. That’s how you get 80 feet in three dribbles.
And even if it is a travel, it’s impressive, because when I dribble a basketball, I have trouble going from the free throw line to the near baseline in three dribbles.
Here's a full look at the play.
