Scouting Report

AssetsA leader in the paint who's incredible length and anticipation make him one of the greatest shot-blockers and rebounders in league history. Still a force in spurts despite his age.
FlawsHis offensive game has never been close to his defensive game and has mostly disappeared later in his career (although he remains a solid free-throw shooter). Fatigue has become a big issue as the years have passed.
Career potentialDominant defensive center and likely Hall of Famer.
