So, Thurl Bailey has been overperforming for me as a versatile stretch big, and it’s the closest thing I can afford to a GO Worthy or D AK47.
He has been much better than Bob Love simply because of size and speed. Size and animations trump everything in this game, so, for example, Thurl’s 80 rebounding at 6’11 feels 2x better than Love’s 90 at 6’8.
That said, I want to add him a D shoe. Should I go with the Air Jordan 3, to boost Speed, ball control and driving layup? Or with a swb shoe? Maybe the South Beach Bron to improve low post D as well as swb?
He does feel decently fast with the ball, certainly much faster than his 69 swb would say. Is it better to boost speed or swb in your opinion?
I ended up giving him a pair of CP3s I sniped. Now whenever he goes into sharp takeover he can speed boost and his LQ is now a 93. He can effectively guard 1-4, shoot from anywhere, and he’s a 6’11 speed booster. Gross lol
