Artis Gilmore '72
Solid, Defensive 'Big' Man
Written by wikisaiyan
Really good, two way Center. Solid speed and his 7'2 frame allows him to finish and defend around the rim.
Bought for: 7,300 MT , good steal I think but MVP Centers are going for cheap. I chose between him and Bill Walton
- Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim.
- Post moves over left shoulder are money.
- Lots of midi and close hot spots.
- 65 Block should really be 95 block. Dude avg'd 5 blocks in '72.
- 65 free throw, although he has solid shooting animation from the line.
- Not really a weakness but only 80 off. consistency
**Recommended Strategy: Post Plays, pick n pop midi's.
Use if: "You want an athletic, solid 2 way center if Olajawon/Kareem/David Robinson are too expensive for you"
Don't use if: "You want a Center that can dominate a game by himself. "
Bottom Line: "Good Center who can start for you if you dont need a major defensive anchor."
