There isnt anything Larry sucks at. He's literally perfect. My Celtics homerism might be coming through but he is still tremendous and I couldn't ask for a better card. He can score from anywhere on the floor, has such a smooth release, and can take it to the rim and finish with a dunk. Defensively the HOF Clamps and Interceptor are huge. He can guard anyone. This card is magnificent
Larry isn't super fast with the ball, but this doesnt matter. When you're running the break with him he's amazing as a spot up shooter so just don't necessarily attack against someone like PD Wilt or Shaq. Vertical isn't great either but at this point it's picking nits.
Recommended Strategy: Run the offense through him. Floppy sets, 21 Delay with him, 4 out and Bird cutting. Once he burns the defense, his gravity is so huge that they have to focus on him. He will hit but don't get carried away. However if you're open odds are Larry puts it in the hole.
Other Comments: Larry is perfect
Use if: You want to win games
Don't use if: You're broke
Bottom Line: He's the best card in the game.
