Holy fucking Jesus

Written by PatsCelticsSox

Bought for: Free

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: It’s J Rich, do I even have to explain?
  • 3 point shooting: He has been the most consistent shooter I have used all year. His release is perfect, not too fast, certainly not too slow. I’m hitting over 75% of my threes with him in over 10 games of tto.
  • Defense: All the badges and amazing speed and lateral quickness allow him to guard any card under 6’9. Steals everything
  • Rebounding: He is surprisingly good here. At 6’6 I was expecting much worse
  • Leaner and pull up: His leaner may not be the strongest part of his game, but it’s ok. The pull up on the other hand is great. Quick, smooth animation that goes down when open
  • Playmaking: Hof Dimer and good passing stats make him a great playmaker

Weaknesses:

  • Height: At this point in the game, you’ve got guys like Kirilenko at point, so he may have a tough time on offense against those guys
  • Post game: I am not a fan of his fadeaway animations. No separation and combined with his height, he is tough to use in the post.
  • Attainability: You will run into people running five bigs and Shaq at point guard more times than you’ll care to

Recommended Strategy: Five out Iso, deep threes, run at point guard

Other Comments: He’s got a cash release and is well worth the grind. I’m not much of a dribbler so I can’t really comment on that, sorry.

Use if: You can get him

Don't use if: You want some insanely tall lineup

Bottom Line: Best potm reward by far and a top 3-7 card in the game
