Better Than You Think.

This Amy Pau Gasol card is probably better than you think, not many people use him but he is good in the right hands.

Bought for: 11k MT

Strengths:

  • Post Scoring: Pau is a 7'0 giant with a 93 post hook and 92 post fade + 90 strength, but his badges are where he really excels. HOF Post-Spin Technician, Gold Backdown Punisher, Dropstepper, Deep Fades, and Contact Finisher is some serious work. Dominant inside big man.

  • Shooting: Can hit mid-range shots consistently with his 90 mid-range, 74 3pt is decent for a C too. Gold Catch-and-Shoot and Bronze Corner Specialist are so important in preventing paint-sitting.

  • Defense: 88 interior defense and 84 block with Gold Moving Truck, Rim Protector, and Bronze Intimidator. Defensive tendencies are good too.

  • Screen Plays: Has Gold Brick Wall(sets solid screens), Pick-and-Roller and Pick-and-Popper. He's a lob threat off the roll too with Gold Lob-city Finisher.

  • Rebounding: 90 rebounding stats + Gold Rebound Chaser, Box, Worm, and Putback Boss.

  • Bronze Dimer

Weaknesses:

  • I think his release is slow.

  • Not the most athletic guy he's quite sluggish.

  • Cannot defend on the perimeter AT ALL, will get beaten by guys like Giannis.

Recommended Strategy: Run screen plays, work the post.

Use if: You love playing the post game and want a Center that can shoot and defend.

Don't use if: You need athleticism.

Bottom Line: An underrated card in my opinion.
