Scouting Report

AssetsUnique in NBA history for his mix of sheer size, power, agility, and charisma. Changed the way opponents played due to his force in the post. A fantastic competitor who hustled and led with both words and deeds. A class act and a great ambassador for the sport and league.
FlawsNever developed much of a game outside the paint and is renowned for his awful free-throw shooting. Getting hacked took its toll. Was foul-prone at times.
Career potentialLegendary center and certain Hall-of-Famer.
