Budget Beast

Written by griffin958

Best value in the game at the center position.

Bought for: 8,500 MT when packs first released


  • Excellent in the pick & roll
  • Can knock down open threes
  • Excellent post defender
  • surprisingly good shot blocker despite low block rating


  • relatively slow
  • if he is moving in the slightest while shooting it's a guaranteed brick

Recommended Strategy: I run 4 or 5 out and have him set on ball screens until the opponent learns to guard it. If that isn't working, I can always feed him in the post for a hook shot to get an easy bucket.

Other Comments: If you like your center to score after setting screens, this the best cheap option out there.

Use if: You like to run the pick & roll with your center

Don't use if: You want your center to run the break

Bottom Line: Excellent player at a low cost
