Scouting Report

AssetsOne of the most athletic big men in the game's history. A tenacious rebounder and shot-blocker who can dominate the paint in his own end. Nimble and agile. Shows a great nose for steals.
FlawsOffense has always been an afterthought and he's a liability at the charity stripe. Undersized, so has always had to rely on his athleticism. Over the years age & injuries have affected his once-formidable intensity and energy level.
Career potentialAging defense-first star center.
