Taller Ben Wallace
Written by JLBallin
Heard about his amazing game but didn't watch it. Finding out about this moment card was cool but seeing that he's all postgame/defense/rebounding but no shooting, seems like another Ben Wallace.
Bought for: 41K MT (around 50k but just keep lowering on the filter slightly and you'll find some cheaper and I got a good deal)
- Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim. In terms of finishing under the basket with layups or dunks yes he's good. He's not Blake Griffin so don't try to drive.
- Midrange: good enough rating at 84 to hit the opens and a good pick and pop player.
- defense: sticks with his man, blocks shots, picks off passes
- rebounding: not a great vertical but good stats. Vertical does factor in but his size at 7 feet makes it up with good ratings. Vertical factors especially trying to go against high verticals for a big man like Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin.
- Three: just a trash rating, wish he had like 80+
- Driving: ok driving but with low ball control would not try too much or he'll get stripped of the ball
Recommended Strategy: mid range, post moves, pick and pop
Other Comments: (optional) A Taller Ben Wallace with a better midrange and worse dunking but thats not a big deal to me
Use if: "You want a defensive beast of a big man
Don't use if: you want a stretch big or athletic finishing big
Bottom Line: Getting lower in price and plays really consistent for me especially in getting rebounds. only played a few games at the time of this review but he gets nearly 10 in the handful of games I played. He is a center but I like him at PF as both my centers are over 7 ft as I have both PD Kareem and Ralph Sampson and Blake Griffin is my backup PF.
