  One of the best defensive players in history... Long, long arms... A shot blocking machine... Averaged more than 10 boards per game in his career... Sometimes effective hook shot... Not a bad 10-foot baseline jumper if he had a clean look... Poor footwork... Very slow in the open court... Mediocre on the offensive end... Made the difference on defense.
