He doesn't even need to dribble do moves etc (so that rule nonsense would affect him for about 2 games). He could literally just run full speed from end to end. Stop. Get the ball thrown to him as an alley oop and convert it damn near 100% of the time. Even if he missed no one is getting a rebound over him. Lol. Wow. The only thing stopping him is that he isn't a ballhog (like Wilt) even though he should be and should shoot everytime he wouldn't. He'd pass (like in high school).
He'd average 39 ppg, 28 rpg, 18 apg.
Is that why his rebounding % today is lower than Elgin Baylor or Larry Bird's? Guy couldn't even grab boards at a decent rate when his teams starting center is 6-7 Joel Anthony
