Overview: An aging power forward who is just about reaching the end of his career. Strong and surprisingly fluid for a power forward, but nowhere near as explosive as he once was. A member of Michigans Fab Five. Was an All-Star for one season during his career. Has bounced around the League since. Plays with intensity, and is still a competitor. Experienced.
Offense: Will always be known for his ridiculously high release. Shoots the ball with almost full extension in both arms. Just flicks his wrist, but it is hard argue with the results. Gets half of his shots off of cuts and spot ups with fifth coming in transition. Nowhere near the offensive factor he once was. Still runs the floor pretty well. Good finisher. Capable with both hands. Wont take a lot of covered shots from the paint. Wont put the ball on the floor. Lets his teammates create offense for him. Average offensive rebounder. Plays very smart. Solid passer. Wont assert himself anymore. Classic role player in that sense. Has shown a willingness to do what is asked of him and nothing more. Lacks great athleticism.
Defense: Staunch defender despite the athleticism he lost as his career went on. Very strong on the block. Good at denying entry passes when he wants to. Has a hard time matching up with much taller players. Doesnt have the quickness to defend players off the dribble, so he gives them space when they face up. Better shooting big men tend to take advantage of that. Knows when to go for the strip and when to reach. Great at boxing out, but wont rebound out of his area. Commits veteran fouls and knows when hes beat. Capable defender when matched up against backup power forwards, but his shelf life is expiring quickly.
