Scouting Report
Assets: Truly dominant in the low post as a rebounder, shot-blocker, and scorer; unstoppable at times under the hoop, at both ends of the court. A rare mix of explosive athleticism, power, physicality, and energy. Runs and leaps like a guard, yet can also just plain overpower most opponents physically.
Flaws: Foul-prone (especially with technical fouls) and maturity and leadership have been questioned. Turns the ball over a lot and can be a much better passer. Still has a poor shooting stroke, from outside and at the free throw line (the latter a bigger issue since so many of his shots are from the charity stripe).
Career Potential: Defensively dominant star center, on the decline.
