Scouting Report

AssetsWas physically one of the biggest players in NBA history, but also one of its most skilled at the center position. Had great hands and a sweet shooting stroke. A hard-working competitor, he dominated at both ends and showed great court instincts and awareness.
FlawsInjuries (especially to his feet) became his ultimate undoing. Sometimes he lapsed into a finesse game when he could be overpowering opponents. Despite good agility, he was not fast or terribly athletic.
Career potentialDominant all-star center whose career was cut short by injury.
