An entire 110m hurdle race was run in the time it takes Giannis to shoot a free throw

If you were ever wondering about a valid comparison on how long it takes Giannis Antentokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks to shoot a free throw, look no further. 

The NBA Finals MVP, as we all know, is Giannis Antentokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. A close second would be all of the fans across the league who counted in unison (also a bit too fast) while Giannis shot his free-throws game in and game out. But the Greek Freak eventually found a rhythm after all of the heckling and finished out with some new hardware to his collection.  

After a personal observation, it rounded out to nearly 11-13 seconds on average. But sometimes that’s not enough to just provide numbers, especially when there are better comparisons that can be used such as: the time it takes to tie your shoes, or get a coke out of the vending machine.

Or maybe… the amount of time to run an Olympic track and field event.

Giannis Antentokounmpo takes 13 seconds to shoot a free throw

Sometimes comparisons are better seen in a side by side comparison. For Giannis’ free throw abilities, it takes about the same time to run a men’s 110 meter hurdle race. For reference, the fastest time ran in a 110m hurdle race was done by Aries Merritt, with a time of 12.80secs.

Giannis shoots a free-throw in about the same amount of time as Merritt takes to run his race. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? The world may never know, but it is laughable when you put someone shooting free-throws side-by-side to some of the fastest sprinters on the planet.
