Don’t walk the dog around Giannis Antetokounmpo (video)

The Kings tried to roll the ball up-court with mere seconds remaining in the first half against the Bucks, because the clock doesn’t start until someone touches the ball, and they wanted to maximize their time in the frontcourt. The tactic, called “walking the dog,” is common and wise.

Unless you’re playing Giannis Antetokounmpo and his 7-foot-3 (or longer) wingspan.

Rudy Gay looks up and doesn’t seem to realize the pending threat. By then, it’s too late, anyway.

Antetokounmpo’s ankle looks just fine, by the way.
