“It is not about raw statistical numbers for the veteran star key forward anymore. Durable as always and still hits the scoreboard on a regular basis. But it’s his ability to compete in the air and keep the ball alive that is crucial to the team’s system. Has adapted his game so well over the course of the past few years to suit the side’s needs. Without doubt, one of the smartest big forwards in the competition. Remains a crucial component of the line-up.”
