    As good as Wilt was, he was pretty much neutralized by one player that was almost 5 inches shorter than him.

    It's not a stupid question, but it's getting into analytics. The question in the thread was how to build the perfect NBA player, and I don't think anyone would take Duncan Robinson's anything over Curry's anything, right now. Except for youth.

    15 ft tall / 700 lbs / 200 in wingspan
    1 second 3/4 court sprint / 127 in vertical / 54 rep bench press

    Pros
    - Shooting of a Toyota Cue 3
    - Defense of a Ray Lewis with a basketball
    - Bobby Sura swagger
    - PJ Tucker shoe game
    - Possesses the touch AND the power
    - Luis Scola once said his skills looked better than okay. George St. Pierre was impressed by his performance.

    Cons
    - Too unselfish, a true pass first Power Center
    - Cares too much about winning and too little about humanity's survival.
    - Gets called for Over-the-backs frequently
    - Not a generous tipper
    - Has clogged many toilets
    - Cured cancer but got drunk and forgot

    A once a in species type talent. Can take over a game and drop a hundred, but has been known to accidently hospitalize players with his flatulence. Follows social distancing guidelines by having head exist more than 6 ft above everyone else's. Writes poetry about basketball in his spare time.

    I think it'd be more fun to use similar enough body types of two different players in the quest to make the 'perfect' player.

    Hakeem Olajuwon + Dirk Nowitzki
    The ultimate defensive big that can run the floor and defend like a guard that will also combine into the single greatest offensive big man.

    Kevin Durant + Giannis Antetokounmpo
    An athletic powerhouse that can run down the floor with no issue, but is also skilled enough to shot create from any part of the floor.

    Chris Paul + Russell Westbrook
    The ultimate playmaker with elite overall skills put into a strong, fast, and explosive body

    This player needs KG's intensity, Gary Payton's trash talk and most of all: Nene's peenus.

    Harden's scoring genius, strength, handles, vision, deceleration, durability and getting to line IQ.

    Hakeem's length, agility, footwork, explosiveness, stamina, all round defensive disruption, rebounding, rim protection and warrior mentality.

    Unstoppable.
