Scouting Report
A genetic freak of nature built like an NFL defensive end, he has exceptional athleticism at his size. A master dunker, he also displays a smooth, left-handed mid-range stroke and great passing skills. He can be a terror in the low-post like a true big man, or slash through defenses like a small forward. His skill set is unique, but will he have enough height to defend with aplomb against big men at the highest level? Will his bulk prevent him from defending NBA swingmen?
Long Range Potential: Unique franchise player and athletic big man with tremendous upside.
