Budget Beast

Written by TotallyRadical

Bought for:2,950 MT (bid snipe)

Strengths:

Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim, 95 plus in both dunking stats, plus HOF Showtime, this card should be elite at finishing, and the fact it's Shawn Kemp.

Speed: With an 84 speed and gold QFS this card is elite at getting to the rack

Mid Range Ball: With a 92, with floor general on another card this card should be elite

Rebounding: 85 OFR and 88 DFR, this card shouldn't "snag" but it should grab boards consistently.

Ball Handle: He has bad sigs, but he has a good ball handle for a PF/C.

Weaknesses:

Perimeter Defense: Though a perimeter defense wouldn't have been that bad in past MyTeams, this year they released knockdown PF and C cards that this card would have trouble guarding.

Defensive Badges: With the lack of ability to hold Intimidator or Clamps, this card will not have "elite" paint presence but it will be good enough.

Recommended Strategy: Blow by, Rim Run, mid range pull-up, post moves, etc

Use if: You want an athletic mid range slasher as your PF

Don't use if: You need good shooting or perimeter defense

Bottom Line* Great value for cheap, nice player to use while building up your team.
