The Captain

Written by Sladnerm

I use Willis Reed for a good PF that can block and shoot the mid-range. He really helps me on that and I recommend using him at PF. He can be paired up with a tall center and you have a scary rebounding duo.

Bought for: 8,000 MT

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Great at post fadeaways AND post hooks.
  • Mid-Range: Can shoot from 15 feet anyway and in the circle.
  • Rebounding: Amazing leaping ability and hustle that helps him rebound for a short center.

Weaknesses:

-Playmaking: Not really bad at anything, but don't buy if you need a great passer. Alright at P&R.

Recommended Strategy: "Post moves, mid-range, protect the paint."

Use if: "You want an athletic big man to score and block"

Don't use if: "You need a great playmaker."

Bottom Line: "Changes the game. Amazing player for the price of 13 domination games."
