Scouting Report

AssetsPossibly the game's most well-rounded true power forward. A dominant rebounder who shows superb instincts in the paint, yet can regularly hit shots from behind the arc. Works hard at all times, has a feisty nature, and is a good defender. Hits his free throws, and is clutch overall.
FlawsNot much of a shot-blocker for a big man, and occasionally gets into foul trouble defending some of the NBA's bigger, faster post players one-on-one. Not very fast or fluid.
Career potentialSuperstar power forward & regular MVP candidate.
