Didn’t need that Big Fundamentals was that. 3 post moves and a left/right baby hook, power dunk, layup and a sweet midrange jumpshot along with being one of the better playmaking/passing bigs ever is all you need.
Mchale had a sweet fader too btw.
That above >>>>>> more important than the fancy dribble dribble stuff today. Bigs shouldn’t put the ball on the floor and do AI stuff. Being a defender you’d be counting your blessings.
Agreed. I feel really your only advantage as a big is your ability to post up and score easy baskets vs a perimeter player. Unless you have a great jump shot like Dirk and Durant then you are not going to have an advantage over a perimeter player when it comes to shooting.
