Scouting Report
Assets: 'Boogie' is a uniquely well-rounded and dominant center. He has the rare ability to dominate under the basket at both ends of the floor, while also bringing uncommon skills and finesse from the perimeter. One of the best-shooting and best-passing big men on the planet. Plays with great intensity too, and can carry his team.
Flaws: While super-skilled he too often plays out of control, often getting into both foul trouble and turnover trouble. At times his game can get off track because of unnecessary technical fouls, and he can pick his spots better defensively and as a distributor. Early in his career maturity and attitude were questioned.
Career Potential: All-Star center.
