Watching Hulk progress this season has excited a lot of people here at PD. Anytime you have a legit 7 footer with a wide body it screams of an opportunity to dominate. Hulk has teased us all season long with flashes of brilliance followed by phases of ignorance. He has left us to wonder, is he a franchise cornerstone or just a role player? Since the Detroit game Big Dave has slipped a little in his production, maybe due to the insertion of Oneal as the primary post threat . But when we play Miami we get a chance to see how far he has really come.
Shaq vs. Hulk
How else do you grade the guy? How about lining him up against the games all time dominant center? If Hulk recieves the opportunity to line up against the Big Aristotle Pacer fans should get an idea if David is something to wet our pants about, or just another body occupying space. Shaq has been reinvigorated of late so the test will be a difficult one. I am anxiously awaiting this matchup and it will go a long way in forming my opinions of what type of player we have in Hulk.
