VIDEO | Giannis Antetokounmpo full highlights vs. Heat

New, comments

Everyone's favorite teenager put on a garbage time show in Miami, stroking the first three triples of his NBA career against the world champs.

The fun part about Giannis Antetokounmpo?

For better or worse, we really don't know what he will become. Maybe an all-star, maybe a role player. Most likely something in between. But whatever that might be, we know that it'd be damn nice for him to be a reliable option from deep.

So if mop-up duty in Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Heat offered any silver linings, it's that Giannis not only hit his first NBA three-pointer, but he hit his first three three-pointers--all from the same spot on the left wing. It may be early to anoint him the next Larry Bird, but it's never too early to start showcasing skills that could make him something special.
