Makes what he did with Shaq and guys like that so much more impressive. Shaq probably had 5-6 inches and close to 60-100 lbs on him and yet Ben was as solid as a rock in the post. One tough mf'er.
Between the fro and how wide and strong he was I don’t think his size was ever a real issue for him. But real talk he’d struggle to find a role in current nba.
Eh I don't agree with that. I think he would just be a better defensive version of Capela in today's NBA. Good defensive centers can always find a place in the league.
Maybe off the bench on some teams. But he wasn’t very mobile (more of an all time great post defender) and he was an absolute zero offensively. I don’t think he’d be worth it for many teams since centers have to guard the perimeter more now than those days. Guys like Capela and Gobert can at least do some basic things offensively.
