RIP Wes Unseld.

A beast in the paint. At 6' 9"

In an era when every team had a big man at center. Or more accurately, a bigger man at center.

Magic Johnson is 6' 9". What Magic did defensively playing center in relief of the injured Kareem in Game Six of the 1980 NBA Finals against the duo of Dawkins and Jones (both 6' 11") is reminiscent of what Unseld had to do every game.

Rest easy great man.

I have no idea who is playing for who in this video game, but Wes Unseld absolutely dominated the game. A game played in 2017. OK.
