Get him while hes cheap

Written by jpdamato

So i was kinda pissed when they didnt release wall but after seeing his stats i still pulled a few packs and pulled him back to back and decided to keep one to test out. this review is based off 3 games, 2 of which ended in rage quits so take it with a grain of salt. I would also not play him at center he fits much better at PF or even SF. He's essentially a PD Barkley mixed with diamond larry johnson, mixed with like a diamond draymond

Bought for: packed

Strengths:

  • Inside/midrange scoring: he dominates on the post will has a super easy post move and drop step both of which make it super easy to score in the paint. he has the easiest shot ive found in the game so far, he green lights everything and can hit some crazy shots.

  • outside scoring: deep mid and 3s are lights out if hes open, harder if hes guarded but still 11/17 in 3 games for me so far so he can easily hit them

  • defending: can lock anyone down, doesnt matter if theres a size difference because of his crazy strength and lateral quickness. like i said i havent tried him at center but hes getting 3 steals and 2 blocks per game at the 4

  • badges: holy shit. his HOF badges are no joke, he kills people on screens and get crazy rebounds over bigger guys cuz of the badges and his vertical

  • rebounding- HOF hustle rebounder and putback king. and 98 vertical. grabs them all and throws down putbacks like no other.

  • playmaking: way better than i expected, hes fast and can keep up with anyone and can make great passes, he could potentially play SF due to this

Weaknesses:

I really cant find one, if he plays center i can see guys like yao abusing him but ive locked down bosh, mikan and AD in 3 games so idk

Recommended Strategy:

  • Pick n Roll or Pop. Great as a stretch 4 or as a post player. you can run offenses through him to an extent and he can basically do everything

Other Comments:

  • well worth the price, i can see it rising once people realize how good he really is. he also has hot spots everywhere which helps his shooting a lot. averaging about 24/11/3/2/2 in 3 games

Use if:

  • want the PD barkley stopper and want probably the best PF in the game IMO

Don't use if:

  • ummmm cant afford or need a 100% knockdown shooter from 3 at PF

Bottom Line:

  • great player, i think his price will rise soon
