Best Stats: Strength, Post Offense, Rebounding

Playing a post position next to Shaquille O’Neal might have been a frustrating role to fill. You would not be able to fill the lane as often and would often be overshadowed. That being said, Grant found a way to be successful to the tune of 8.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.

Shaquille O’Neal, C (OVR 97) 



Age: 29

Height: 7’1”

Traits: Two-Way Star

Best Stats: Strength, Rebounding, Blocks

Easily one of the most dominant players of all time, Shaq controlled everything that happened during the course of a game due to his physical presence alone. With regular season averages of 28.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 2.76 blocks per game, it was easy to see how he finished on the All-NBA first team this season. In the playoffs, Shaq took his game to another level with averages of 30.4 points, 15.4 rebounds and 2.38 blocks per game.
