Channing Frye '10
Worth the grind to Amethyst
Written by tmad80
I was lucky enough to get this on the TTO boards, and recently finished upgrading him to Amethyst. Long story short, he plays like a much better version of the '20 Porzingas, who he replaced in my lineup.

Bought for: Free
3pt shooting: Frye has an awesome release, and consistently knocks down open and contested shots for me.
Rebounding: Easily pulls down 5+ a game in TTO, and 8+ in full games.
Blocks: Once he's upgraded, he's a beast. In the earlier evolutions, not so much.
- Flexibility: Can play at PF or C.
Speed: He's unbearably slow at first, but gets much better by the time he's upgraded. Still not much with the ball, though.
- Inside scoring: Pretty weak for a PF/C.
Use if: You want a stretch big who can rebound and block shots.
Don't use if: You like to score in the post.
Bottom Line: Great card once evolved. A good sign of things to come, since he was free.
