His defense is trash

Written by TheCuseMuthaFuca

This Galaxy Opal P-Zing is sort of weak. He can't play defense unless you get the evolution version, or play a bunch of games to evo him. The worst part about this card, he has very low defense stats and he camps out on the 3 point line, so he's not going to grab offensive boards with his 98 rebound rating. He's weak too. He can dunk on the fast break. Once in awhile, he'll post up and dunk on someone. But for his height, he's slow, he reaction time is terrible. Small guards make floaters over him easy.

Short paragraph summarizing the review and how you used the player

Bought for: 185,000 MT - sold for 200,000 MT

Strengths:

  • Tall, and he will get some defensive rebounds blocks and steals (but not quick like a Pink Diamond Wilt).

  • You have to know how to shoot 3's with him. He can go cold if he doesn't get a hot start

Weaknesses:

  • Rebounding: Gives away too many rebounds and easy baskets, defensive liability

Recommended Strategy: "Stretch 4 or pair him with a tall player like Tacko for a tall front court"

Use if: "You want a tall PF and need a stretch 4"

Don't use if: "You need a powerful power forward like Blake Griffin or a lock down defender"

Bottom Line: He might be good for your team, but he brought down my team's chemistry and I had to trade him for GO Aaron Gordon. You need to evo him for best defense.
