A better Blake Griffin

Written by EATENTHEBACON

If you like a Blake Griffin type that dunks a lot and has a great post game with a nice 3 Tom is your man

Bought for: 41,350 (would probably try to get him around 50-60k)

Strengths:

  • Post scoring: put gold post badges on him and he becomes a post god if they have below silver defensive stopper, post fade is a good animation
  • Slashing- I put a diamond shoe on him that gets his speed with ball up to a 79 which is 1 speed below 91 ovr Lebron.... his driving layup is low so he doesn't finish contact layups as much as I would like however with the right coach it can be around a 87 which makes it a whole lot better, but if he gets into a dunk animation its over for the Defender. If help D comes you gotta get rid of it fast or he'll get stripped real quick
  • Rebouding- great rebounder, out rebounds a lot of Centers
  • Defense- Can guard 2-5 with his 76 Lat. Quick and 84 strength. But will never lockdown anyone

Weaknesses:

  • Takeover- you look at his stats and think a post scorer or slasher nope it's a sharpshooter takeover which can be nice but his 81 open 3 really limits him
  • no other glaring weaknesses avg or above in most stats

Recommended Strategy: pick & pop/roll, post up, rebound and run, slashing

  • Use if- If you like Blake Griffin's playstyle but want a better version of him

Don't use if you want a lockdown Defender

Bottom line: Besides his takeover he might be one of the best card out right now especially at his price range
