This card is not in the auction house yet but when it comes out everyone should get him. I currently have him in Pack & Playoffs and he carries my team espcially with rebounds, putbacks, easy layups and dunks.

Bought for: Not officially out yet but drafted in Pack & Playoffs

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim. Doesn't need to put effort for layups because he's so tall. Dunks on everyone.
  • Rebounding: terrific rebounding grabs everything, gives a lot of second chances
  • strength: so strong with boxout for rebounding and bullying in the paint

Weaknesses:

  • speed: not fast but dominance in height makes up
  • midrange: can make it when wide open and close but not terrific

Recommended Strategy: go in the paint and dominate

Use if: You want to use a paint dominant rebounding big. Kinda like a budget Shaq

Don't use if: you want a more fast and shooting type of big: Porzingis, Embiid, Gasol, Dirk

Bottom Line: pretty much a budget Shaq. Tallest player in the game and definitely stronger than Manute Bol who is the same height. A must have when the card officially comes out and definitely a nice alternative to the ruby Shaq if you didn't preorder or the 99 Shaq which will be hard to get or even before a Yao Ming card comes out

    Heads up he doesn’t dunk on anyone and he misses layups, pack and playoffs they don’t lose energy

    But solid review otherwise

    thanks for the heads up. Reviewed him only in pack and playoffs when he gets a lot of putbacks, post game, and 15+ rebounds. Obviously stats will be different in supermax but I'll update when he is officially released in packs and auction house
