He is a competitor, battles at all times to establish post position and is very active His motor is excellent and he shows it by running the floor as well as anyone in the country Around the basket he is very active and he knows how to move without the ball to get to open spaces Has been the beneficiary of some great passes, but a lot of it has to do with his ability to read the action as well as being able to catch pretty much any pass that is thrown his way.
His repertoire in the post is limited, as a result he does not demand much attention from defenses Struggles getting his shot of against bigger defenders
