Here I am wondering what could people be talking about in the Giannis thread with how consistent he's been... lo and behold only on this forum can people complain about a guy averaging 29/10.5/5/1.7/1.3  and 2.8 TOs on 55%

 

If your team is under performing it probably isn't this mans fault. With Harden injured, Curry back to keep Durant a little quieter and IT4 coming back to keep Lebron a little quieter. I expect him to be the #1 fantasy player by the end of the year.

Only thing I can say that I'm disappointed with Giannis this year is the 3-point shooting. I remember reading somewhere in the offseason about him working hard on his shot. If the dude develops that 3 ball, good luck everyone else.

 

Obviously it would have been nice if he developed the 3 ball, but nothing in his past indicated he would be contribute much of anything in 3PT.  (Giannis hasn't improved his 3 point shooting at all since his rookie year.  In fact his rookie year was by far his best year shooting 3s even if it was still a lousy 3 PT percentage).  I drafted him knowing he would contribute next to nothing in 3PTS (just like people who drafted Curry drafted him knowing he would contribute next to nothing in blocks).

 

Blocks on the other hand are something that I was counting on from Giannis based on his averaging 2 a game last year and the fact that prior to this year he had improved his blocks every single year.

 

In previous post I even said that Giannis hasn't been a bust like Whiteside, but still the extreme regression in blocks has been disappointing.

My team with giannis is in 1st place both in 14 team and 12 team. Its not underperforming. But i wouldn't stream some big men in 14 team if he had his blocks where it was last year. Cant deny though, having still an mvp year for himself. Monster line tonight, already back to #4 in fantasy.
