Desmond Mason '18
Written by around5
I was thinking about doing a review on him and after finally getting used to this a card, I was happy to voice my opinion. If you want a slashing point guard, get him NOW!
Price: He is around 18,000
Inside scoring: Man like Desmond is like Ronaldo in slashing. Man dunks and dunks and dunks like he is possessed (unless you are right in front of 4 people, we gotta keep it realistic). His dunk animations are not too crazy like a 360 windmill. He just does tomahawks really. Can do standing dunks as well.
3pt shot: He does have gold range extender and hot zone hunter so there is a chance for him to green easily. Plus, he has HOF green machine which helps a lot. His jump shot is clean and quick (like TMAC) so you shouldn’t experience too many problems.
Perimeter Defense: There is a reason why I say perimeter. He can hold his ground on defense and abuse smaller guard because of his strength and badges. When I off ball (sorry guys) he gets steals and can clamp other players. He does foul sometimes though.
- Speed: Can speed boost and has 94 speed with ball. It’s calm.
Rebounding: He can’t really rebound at all. Weird how he averaged like 6 rebounds and 2k disrespecting my g.
- Dribbling: I don’t know why but 2k with their money-making brains gave him dribble moves that Muresan can do. Don’t dribble with him as you will not achieve anything doing so.
Recommended Strategy:Drive, deep hatch rim run and a low-key catch and shoot player. Use bare hop steps as well. Other Comments:Use Heat 13 playbook as it can get him open for shots and drives to the rim.
Use if:You want a slashing point guard who will dunk at will.
Don't use if: You want to dribble a lot.
Bottom Line: "Great value for money and is one of the best slashers in the game.”
