Nazr Mohammed will never be remembered as one of the best players to ever suit up in the NBA. But there is one thing the 17-year veteran is more than qualified to do: analyze NBA post players.
Mohammed, who came off the bench for the Bulls the last three seasons, listed off the most difficult players he’s ever had to defend for The Player’s Tribune. For a player who has been in the league as long as Mohammed, that list includes some very notable names.
According to Mohammed, there was one player who was in a class of his own. After that, however, there were a number of players who made night’s difficult for the 6-foot-10 center.
Via The Player’s Tribune:
Unsurprisingly, Mohammed had some of the most difficulties against guys who will go down as the best big men in the history of the game. Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Duncan are immediate Hall of Fame players, with Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki not too far behind. Yao Ming and Rasheed Wallace may be heading in that direction as well.
