You guys are crazy if you don't acknowledge most of his success was purely from his size strength and athletic ability. It's obvious and even his post "moves" usually derived from putting his big ass into someone or some form of leaning/ elbowing them out of the way first because he had them by 80 or 100lbs or simply jumping higher. There was nothing finesse or shooting about most of his game. He couldn't make a jump shot or anyshot more than 5 feet way. Being bigger and overpowering or jumping higher than them isn't skill.
I guess if you consider his foot work and soft hands as part of his athleticism then ok...
The guy's agility, mobility, and touch around the rim were all exceptional.
Those were the ancillary parts to what actually fueled the majority of his success. His size, strength and athletic ability was clearly driving most of it that's all I've said. I don't know who can really disagree with that with a straight face.
