Scouting Report
Assets: A team leader and a warrior in the paint. Brings a lunchpail attitude. Uses his impressive wingspan to pile up blocks and boards, and battles opponents constantly at both ends of the floor. Has a nice set of offensive moves around the basket. Very experienced.
Flaws: Injuries have increased as his career has progressed, limiting his production and ability to play major minutes. A good rebounder but not a top-tier one. Range on his jumper is limited. Turnovers have always been an issue.
Career Potential: Aging star center.
