What the honest hell is this set? This card can genuinely hang with the best. Drive, shoot, defend, rebound; whatever you need, this mans got it all and he's barely going for anything.

Bought for: Packed in a 10 Box (got about 5 Huerters)

Strengths:

  • Inside Scoring: The combination of his length along with his insane attributes, create quite an abomination. Pair that up with HOF Posterizer, he genuinely feels like a Giannis on the break. And in half court, he isn't something to laugh at either. MB in the low-post can bang with any center, abuse the post fade of doom or just spam post up spins and he's genuinely unstoppable.

  • Athleticism: To continue on with the Giannis comparison, MB straight up gallops like a race horse down a track. In every fastbreak he's the first one down the court giving my team easy fast break points. Along with speed he also has an insane vertical which leads me on to my next strength.
  • Rebounding: 95 Vert + 96+ rebounding stats, essentially makes him a black hole that consumes the ball. He also has HOF Hustle Rebounder...

  • Defense: This card is genuinely annoying to play against. Though his Lateral seems quite low, it's quite the contrary. Literally zips around the court and his long frame doesn't hurt. Even if he gets pushed back in the low post, his length makes up for it, literally blocking everything in sight.

  • Outside Scoring: The cherry on top to complete this demigod, 94 Three with D'Antoni and one of the nicest releases for a big men.

Mediocre:

  • Strength: 65 Strength isn't the best, but it isn't bad. Just quite meh in all honesty.

  • Playmaking: You shouldn't really be playmaking with your 4 but, if you were to, it isn't the worst idea.

Alternatives: Diamond JJJ (Essentially the same card, but Diamond JJJ is more defensive minded while MB is quite the offensive maestro)

Use if: You want to

Don't use if: You don't want to

Bottom Line: By far the best collection 2k has released, can't go wrong with any of the cards. Aids both Budget Ballers and God Squads
