Marc Gasol '12
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
