His pick and roll defense would be exposed badly

he'd get his for sure but he would get roasted by his opposing C shooting wide open 3's.

He's right though. Game is way more about finesse now.

He's right in the sense that there is absolutely nothing any center in the league now can do against him defensively. The flipside is his pick and roll defense was suspect in his own era and the modern center is comfortable shooting the ball well outside his defensive comfort zone. I could see the younger, more nimble Orlando Shaq adapting to this era defensively. I think people think of Shaq more in terms of his Lakers heyday when he was slower and heavier( more skilled and refined of course) , but forget Shaq was pretty spry in his Orlando days. If you took Orlando Shaq and infused him with 2001 Shaq's experience....Jesus Christ.

Shaq had problems with centers who shot mid range, which made him abandon the paint. He would be fücked with Embiid and the likes.

The problems he had with them were nowhere near the problems they had with him. Embiid taking jumpers is really just bailing out the defense anyway; he's a guy with the ability to dominate the paint. whenever he takes a jumper he turns himself into a slightly below-average shooting guard. Meanwhile Shaq makes over half his attempts and puts whole front courts into foul trouble every game.

The opposing center hits 4 or 5 open threes, while Shaq puts up 35 on 65%, while putting the opposing bigs in foul trouble. And Shaq finds 4 or 5 open three point shooters to counter.

I'd live with having Shaq on my team.

Yeah, seriously. Imagine having Shaq drawing triple teams inside and got someone like Steph Curry( or even Klay) out on the wing. Lawd have mercy.

Yikes

Dubs, Cavs, Rockets would lick thier chops to trade 3's for 2's-1's and watching Shaq gas out by 2nd half

I know you nostalgic 90's stans don't like change but damn.... yall apparently havn't even watch a lick of pro ball in years

Elite 3pt shooting high pace teams feast off opponents slow 7 footers who can't close out on D and limp up and down the court

It's like. ermm. the core reason why slow flat footed big teams went extinct

I generally scroll past your posts without a glance, so not much


The thought of Shaq defending a spread 4-5 and not paint camping on D is cute though


2* for participation
