So I packed this card a few days ago and I’ve been playing some TTO with him. I am relatively new to this game, I’ve only played for two months or so because all my friends have it and it was on sale. This also is my first review so if it’s absolute buns I apologize. This review is only based off TTO and one or two unranked friendly games. He’s solid in most areas. Not insanely OP but is an absolute monster in the paint.

Acquired By: Going for a GO in the guaranteed PD or higher Ultimate pack.

Strengths:

  • Anything in the paint: Whether it’s scoring inside or rebounding or even posting up, this guy bullies anyone (at least that I’ve played) like the one kid that would always be stealing your lunch money in elementary school.
  • Mid Range is DECENT. Not necessarily a strength but it isn’t as bad as I thought, he knocks down a few but don’t try a lot of them bc I might’ve just gotten lucky.
  • Athleticism: Not insanely fast but 82 speed is alright for a center I guess. Monster strength and again pretty much bullies anyone inside. -Release: Maybe I just like some really awkward releases but his release actually isn’t too bad. I’ve even made a 3 or two with him. Of course they were greens because he isn’t making anything that isn’t excellent outside the arc. I personally like his release but that might be just me :/

Weaknesses:

  • 3pt Shooting: This is an obvious one just based on his stats. They sadly didn’t want this card to be cheesy like just about any other PD or GO. Simple ideology: if it isn’t green like St. Patty’s Day, it isn’t going in. Although his release is pretty good so it’s always worth a shot if you’re up by a good margin and just feel like doing something your opponent wouldn’t expect at all.

  • Playmaking: Again another obvious one. Just let someone else take the ball up.

Recommended Strategy: Let him sit in the paint and in the post. Let him loose inside and let him bully kids like it’s 3rd grade all over again.

Use if: “You want a traditional center that can bully inside.”

Don't use if: "You want a cheesy center that can shoot threes and stuff like that.”

Bottom Line: "Great value for money, might not be the best pack pull but still very usable.

Other Comments: First review so don’t bully me too much, I’m trying.
