Bob Cousy '57
Hes not old Hes a veteran
Written by leddleleddle69
If you are like me you are not into getting really old players for whatever reason. But i sold my 98 Westbrook for more depth and this Cousy has been everything Westbrook was minus dunking, but he does shoot the ball better.
Bought for: 53,000 Mt (or somewhere around there)
Strengths: Absolute deadeye from 3-point range, great at running my pick and roll offense with his ability to get to the rim and draw fouls, make tight passes, hit a fade from deep or mid range, and kick it to 3 point shooters. Awesome with the ball in his hands, but can also come off screens and drill a 3 whenever. What i was surprised about was how good he is on defense. Cousy has played 3 games for me and has locked down Archibald, Walker, and 95 Kidd he is awesome on ball and has an unreal 96 strength rating to bully others guards.
Wouldnt really call a 76 reb rating a weakness for a 6"1 point guard but yeah i guess he isnt really Olajuwon on the backboards. Also, he takes a lot of reach in fouls for some reason even with a really good steal rating and pick pocket idk maybe its just been these 3 games.
Recommended Strategy: With my Bob i like the have him play a Chris Paul like role. He always has the ball in his hands running pick and roll game and setting up the teams offense.
Other Comments: He doesnt look weird like some other oldies. I have him in gold Wizards jerseys and he doesnt look weird. Is that worth saying? why not i guess.
Use if: You want a point guard who can do it ALL.
Don't use if: You want an iso point guard... he can do it but there is better options.
Bottom Line: By far my best value buy. He does everything for me i would throw out some stats but the last 3 people ive played while hes on my team havent made it out of the 1st half. BUY BOB COUSY!!!
